Is my train collection too large for my house? Nevermind, I already know the answer. The obvious next step will be to move the whole thing outdoors. This is a collection of G-scale model railroad trains from LGB and Piko. It starts with a LGB 25554 White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad diesel locomotive pulling freight cars. Next, there's a LGB 21576 Santa Fe diesel locomotive pulling passenger cars. Finally, a Piko 38212 AT&SF steam locomotive provides some pretty cool steam train sounds! I don't know what the deal is with the headlight on that locomotive... it seems to randomly go on and off. The operation of multiple trains on the same layout is made easy due to DCC - digital command control - which allows you to control each train individually. This includes changing speed and operating the horn and bell of each train. It's a fun hobby! What you see in this video was the way my train layout was in early 2015. About a year later, I still hadn't stepped up to an outdoor layout... but I came up with a much more elaborate layout for inside the house. Check it out at https://youtu.be/MMVZxWKB-Ls
A Busy Day at Sutterby Junction. Sutterby Junction is a fictitious main line station on an extensive O Gauge main line garden layout, loosely based on a flavour of the ECML in the late 1930's to late 40’s. A scale 2 miles run round the garden enables Pacifics and the like to stretch their legs with scale length trains at scale speeds of up to 90+mph and long goods trains to trundle round to their hearts content. The main track work is now complete, just the branch line to be rebuilt. Whilst there is still a good bit of work to be done around the railway in the form of scenic work, the main line is now fully operational. Comprising mainly of twin track, with up to four and six tracks wide in a number of places for around 50% of the layout, giving excellent operational opportunities. Long approaches to the main station (housed indoors) and multiple roads in the cutting area, allow plenty of scope for complex running. One of the main features of this railway is the emphasis on scenic work, something usually only carried out on indoor railways and is very rarely attempted on garden railways. The scenic side is being constantly improved, to give a little more “real feel” to an outside line. The railway is run quite a bit during the summer months (good weather permitting) and remains in place throughout the year, only the outside buildings being taken in in the winter from around the end of November to beginning of March. There are one or two other items added to give a little more "realism" to the models. The smoke effect at the tunnel exit and, on a few occasions, a lively fire can be seen in the cab of the V2, especially when stood off the end of the platform at Orby Bank.

One of the reasons there hasn't been any updates, is because "Leamington Spa" has been closed to traffic. From early June the team have been busy doing major work on the layout. The massive platforms are now being tiled, and Pete Waterman & the lads have been putting hours and hours work in to it. In fact the work is still on-going. The "Royal" gardens have been re-designed and improved. Pete has let Ted run his Warship, also Ted earlier brought his Jubilee "Australia"....but didn't get chance to run it (engineering work)!! This video hopefully shows the amount of work, skill and effort involved.
Sorry for the shakiness off the video and the lack of running footage. I ran it for about an hour after the unboxing without a problem.
