I did watch two of the videos but I must say I thought the layout was a bit bland...perhaps it was the low video quality, but it looked like contractors had built most of it and given that it wasn't finished in one area and yet there was no evidence of on going modelling I got the impression that some city banker had said in a deep scary voice, preferably through a smooth obsidian sphere with fire burning inside, "HERE IS £20,000 - BUILD ME A LAYOUT WORTHY OF MORDOR..."

The DCC part was quite informative I agree! At least if you like operating your models to signal blocks etc. or with auto-pilot!

You would think that the model railway paparazzi would be straight round to his home!

Happy modelling
Gary

Yes, this is the sort of layout that should grace the pages of our mags.

I never really thought of Sauron as a railway modeller?

Yes I've watched this many times before, there are direct links from the Digitrax site - impressive isn't it. Certainly it cost a lot of money and perhaps 1000's modelling hours to create. Does this Bloke have friends or just an obsession. Perhaps equally as impressive is Pete Waterman's O gauge Lemmington Spa.
