Ready for the NEC

Click to enlarge!
Just doing final bits to Brew Street for the NEC (it will be on the Model Rail mag stand). I have very limited space, so the fiddle/staging yards are just a couple of modified cassettes. They clip on either end as and when required. 

The built in lighting holds its own even in daylight. Punters at shows are like moths, they are attracted to bright lights. Tip; if you have a really crappy layout, light it nice and brightly - they'll come flocking to it like bargain hunters to the model railway manufactures'  when they're flogging off all the old tat at the NEC Warley Show first thing Saturday!

A proper feature on the build of this layout is in the current Model Rail magazine (December 2016 / No. 229)



  1. But where does the ukulele plug in.......?

  2. Alternatevely, low lighting could get your layout largely ignored allowing one to have a quiet day without the great unwashed asking silly questions...

  3. Needs lighting control to bring in a subdued light then actuate thunder and lightning
