    30 trains run through 17 stations simultaneously.
    It is controlled by closed circuit television monitors from a central control room.

    I considered the streamlined Coronation by Ace Trains of London a masterpiece.
    The Duchess is a work of art.

    Hi There,
    I have just completed a video of my London Underground line from Victoria to Sambridge.

    The Metro Vic locomotives ran up to 1960.

    Enjoy Roy.

    Very cool layout, those metroviks are fantastic… but having 6 of them but only a few Duchesses...
    I guess your next venture should be road widening, there looks to be some major traffic problems on those streets :)

    the quality of O Gauge has noticeably improved in quality and attractive prices in the last few years.. the variety now available is amazing considering what it used to be.

    I attached a camera to the rear of the Mid/day Scot.
    This travels over the new extension and shows the quadruple track.

  19. I just hope for your sake that you have excellent security. There have been too many cases of garden railways being targeted by thieves.
