Because I build c**p layouts that leave some people cold and cause them to walk past (words of someone on this and another forum). I decided to buy a layout and just won this on eBay:

It gives me the opportunity to eventually go back to British OO and into DCC at the same time!!!!

Personally, I think the ballast looks a bit 'patchy' although that could have happened in transit at a guess. I agree that it needs weathering (as does the shed IMHO)

I also can't help but think that there should be a fence between the buildings and the track, otherwise people could just wander out of the buildings and onto the track.

It could also be a trick of the camera, but the back scene seems to be bubbling, but that's pretty easy to fix at a guess.

It's a nice enough layout, but I can't help thinking that you could have built a layout to a far better standard for less money than you paid for it.
I didn't realise bit's of plasticard to scratch build a shed cost so much.
