  2. https://streamable.com/9xiit7 Here's a video of the scotrail hst outdoors, spent a lot of time in February and March getting things nearly finished. Ps I'm not sure how to embed the video
  3. I've been busy of late trying to get this project finished. Been getting an extension built on the house so I managed to recycle a lot of the rock that was dug up and use it to make the track look less suspended. Furthermore I've managed to convert the area next to the railway into a wee play area for the kids, and hopefully weather permitting can get track cleaned and trains running in next few weeks. Here's a few pics of how it's looking. Next job to clear out the greenhouse!
  4. Here's a few more pics, mostly screenshots from videos. My camera on phone isn't the best, has dirt stuck in it so not as clear as it could be. They are from various stages over the summer and autumn. Went out the other day to find the local deer have been eating my plants...
  5. Here's a few more updated pics, I've been trying to work away over lockdown on the landscaping, 30 bags of soil went in to the main section to bring it up to a higher level, I had a garden gazebo that had been wrecked by high winds so I cut the patterned curves from it and painted them with hammerite to make the bridges. They probably aren't perfect scale wise but I think they look quite good. Been plodding away all summer when I get a moment, planted a few plants in the rockery so it's getting there..
  6. Thanks for the replies, the above storage looks great and is something I'll definitely look into over next few weeks. I decided against putting points on the the layout , still a relative novice at it and it was my first time using flexi track, so felt I had enough on my plate without adding points. Theres still a few wee parts of track that cause the odd problem with certain coaches and locos but hopefully I'll get them sorted over time. As I want my kids and nephew to be able to enjoy it I'm using hornby select controllers too, I find they offer enough dcc control without being o
  7. I'm still considering what to do at the moment whether to extend it or not. At the moment it's a bit of a pain taking the trains in and out but needs must at the minute. I'd be scared to leave them in a shed with the value of them aswell but I'm trying to find a way to store them quickly indoors where they can be taken out soon. The Caledonian sleepers are ridiculously expensive I've noticed, I gradually bought them all up over time, the majority of them were bargains in comparison to going rate now. My dad models military stuff to a very good standard so weathered them all for me
  8. Joined this forum what I thought was a couple of years ago, and when I checked my email yesterday I couldn't believe it was actually 5 years ago. Have been having a look for ideas etc and have managed to convert a hidden corner of the garden into an outdoor layout. There were various challenges along the way, the land ran at a gradient so some deep digging was required at one section and then elevated supports at the other, so all in all its taken about 2 years to build. It's still a work in progress, I have work to do to try and raise the ground to make it look less h
