    My new 1:480 scale linear motor-powered exhibition layout is now taking shape. It is a 6' x 2' model of a small mainline station in south-western England named Dauntsey. The main features will be a double-track main line with a small goods yard for some automatic shunting, enough storage to provide a good assortment of trains, half a mile of working canal alongside the railway, plus a small road loop with trucks servicing the goods yard.

    Most of the track, wiring and electronics are done, with completion of that stage expected by the end of the month.

    The canal loop is ready to install. A simple meandering oval running alongside the railway, with a working lock as an unusual scenic feature.

    All the track has been assembled and installed. All the electronics modules have been built and tested. There are currently 75 3-wire cables dangling beneath the layout, all of which plug in to those modules.
