That looks pretty good. I think your friend would have a lot to contribute from the experience he has gained from building that.

Excellent stuff, I love it! It's great to see other peoples layouts, especially those that you would never get to see because they are permanent in lofts and rooms.

One Question: How did you make your stone retaining wall? I need to do something like this for mine soon, and I've been looking for different ways of doing it.

Cheers

The stone retaining walls on the layout are polystyrene ! Got them at a show , think the company was international models , or something like that . They are about 16 inches long and about 6 inches high each .

Dear Camelotjnc...

I see from your videos that you have both of the Lenz dcc controllers (90/100 ?)... I am looking to buy a decent DCC controller soon, and am confused as to which one to go for. Would you be able to provide any feedback from your past experiences using these two?

Regards,

Jonathan.

Hi Jonathan,
I have had the lenz system (SET 01) for 4 years now and it has been superb , never had any trouble . I have the different controllers for different reasons . The LH100 controller is great for programming the decoders and setting up the whole system , easy to use and understsnd . The LH90 and LH30 controllers are great for shunting and running trains because you get a feel for the controllers and end up not having to look at them , all you have to do is look where the train is and make sure your not buffer bashing ! Thats all i can say really hope this helps .
regards simon
