    Well here are more photos, while I had the camera I thought I'd take a few quickly of my home layout (still very very much a work in progress.. no sections are finished yet). I should've had some trains on the layout for the pics but I didn't have much time sorry!

    Views of the harbour in development. You know you are unemployed when you carve a sea wall by hand!

    WOW!!

    My goodness! your firt pic gave me the impression it was a single board layout Graham. That's a Huge layout by my reckoning!

    A splendid job you've made of the sea front, from the wall and the effect of the water and cliffs in the background.

    Your LPP's must know about how I drive my staff!!:D :D but then, when I chastise them they just freeze and say nothing :) .

    Thanks for the pics sir.

    I love it!

    I wish I were that far along. I got a lot of stuff in boxes. I like the feel of the tracks going thru the towns. Your sea wall is beautiful- calm waters in the bay.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow! That's some good modeling, do you have a track plan? I like the lake, it looks really good, is it Envirotex?

    Mike.

    PS, more pictures please!

    SD90,

    I'll try and put a track plan tgether, although its evolving a bit.

    the water is actually painted plaster with four or five coats of varathane (I recently refinished a floor so I thought I would try it

    Thanks for the comments!! I'll get more pics as I make progress and borrow a camera!!
