    That train coming out of the heix and crossing that long bridge was just breath taking !! Your train speed and scenery work is above and beyond excellent !! (y)(y)(y)(y):):):):):)

    Just amazing! The only thing I could add would be the addition of distributed power and an even longer train, though I am not sure is the prototype does that. My daughter loved watching the train on the helix and over the water on the bridges. Very well done layout!

    Thanks David.
    The maximum train length on my layout is about 6 meters. More is not possible. You can see it on the bottom layout. If I increase my layout, my wife divorces :D
    Sometimes I also drive with dpu and midtrain helper. The synchronization must then be 100% correct.

    Dogwood, That is am amazing layout for operation and scenery. What make of track and switches do you use? Also, do you anything special for trucks and couplers?
    Thanks, Tonkphilip

    I've use ATLAS and Microengineering Code55 track and turnouts. The system is controlled with DCC DIGITRAX and for programming I use ESU Lokprogrammer and DIGITRAX PR3 JMRI.
    I use only MTL trucks and coupler, that's the best
    for Nscale. All rolling stock are equipped with BLMA and Exactrail metal wheel sets. They run very well with it.
