Well done Mitch, :thumbright: :thumbright: But they are slightly small. Can you try changing the setting to 1,366px and see how the look and more importantly, if they will load….If not you can always go back to 800px.

A very interesting line Mitch. Love the trestle bridge. The track on the side opposite the yard does look a bit to close to the edge though for me. But if your happy with it, so am I.

You have loads of scope for expansion too. Great stuff. :thumbright: :thumbright:

A video tour of a line with commentary is not something you see often on YouTube so it made a nice change to watch and listen.

Well done Mitch.
I love the shed picture but the 'breaking the banner' is a photo to print out, frame and and hang on the wall! :thumbright: :thumbright:

Congratulations Mitch, a landmark for your railway. There is something very satisfying about the grand opening ceremony to show how your line has developed.
Mine was in August 2013, quite a while ago now, but still well remembered.......
