    I thought I'd try something a bit different for a change and ran some modern stock on the layout.

    Being the lazy so-and-so that I am, I didn't bother changing the vehicles or advertising hoardings, instead choosing to use angles that minimised the incongruity.

    As usual, I took some photos and a video clip.

    and the video clip (with some new effects)

    Enjoy - you won't see it too often.

    Very nice work. As for running modern, hey this is a fantasy world after all. My locos are all way too clean to be real. In my fantasy, locos are properly maintained.:D

    Love the way the trains came rumbling by @ scale speed, looks great! Some of the shots made me feel like a worker in one of those buildings stopping my work to go see whats out and about today!! Hehehe
