Been busy installing more signals on the D&H. A total of 20 this weekend. There are 16 in total in Whitehall alone. This comprises of 8 single mast with 3 search lights on each mast plus 8 dwarfs.






I also built (and modified to suit the location) and installed 2 Stewart products, thew dual sanding tower and the fuel point into the loco facility.

Really happy with the way they came out.

Wow!  This is really coming together.  Great work on the signals, and I really like the large building in the second photo, the one with stone on the first story wtih brick on the others.  What did you use for this, just out of curiosity?

The buildings in the second pic are prints mounted on MDF blocks.
I picked them up from a friend that had them on his layout. I think they are from http://www.kingmill.com/. They no longer make them.

The last of the 46 signals has now been installed on the layout.






Now for more testing.

Created a couple of layout tour videos from the back of a flat car.

Today I spent some time adding an Atlas 2 track girder bridge to the main line and loop tracks in Cooperville.
I ave also shortened the front fascia and cut more of the foam out to give a better contour along the front of the upper deck.




The next step is to add a few other bridges to a few more spots around the upper deck.
