Amazing! (You're not based near York by any chance? I'd love to see that!)

Do you have a map of the layout? How large is it?

Thank you for your comments on my railway they are much appreciated.
A few basic facts on this railway in answer to your questions are as follows.
This is my own private layout and I am based in Kent.
The railway dimensions are 50 feet x 30 feet on four levels it is a walk round format running through 5 sheds. Access to the layout for maintenance etc is by way of strategically placed hatches.
It is 0 gauge scale 1/43
Up to 30 trains run simultaneously and automatically on the block section system. Manual overide operation is from a central control room with the aid of closed circuit television.
The trains seen running in the video clip, steam loco's are Bassett Lowke and Ace Trains. Diesel loco's are mainly Heljan. The rolling stock is mainly Ace Trains Lima and Darstaed.
Over a period of 16 years to build. I will endeavour to try and post a layout plan of the railway. To date it is in a folder that refuses to be downloaded.
There is a suburban network that does not show in this video other than a glimpse of an underground train.

Brilliant.

What camera / camcorder did you use to film it.

I would love to see a map of the layout and try and work out where the hell we went :D

I'm sure you could make a few bucks $$$$ and invite a few people to have a look at the layout! I'd love to have a look and have a play! Paying £30+ to see such an amazing layout would be well worth it!

****Hint Hint***:lol:
