Yes, my layout is done. But as you can see in the picture, there is still a lot to do.
This layout was started more than 2 years ago, but “real life” often comes in the way. I am glad to announce, however, that my layout is “technically” done. All tracks are connected, trains have run everywhere with satisfying behaviour, and my computer software has been taught some automation basics (for example to manage the fiddle yard).
Now begins a difficult phase: building the landscape…which I will probably keep postponing as much as possible, probably by converting trains to DCC instead 😉
In the meantime, here is a short video of a running test (computer controlled):
And a few pictures:
And as reminder, the 3D view of the compact layout is available here.
