Extremely good well made video Iain it shows people how Itrain is in full control of the railway using full block control adjusting schedules as necessary where track reservations are in place. Plus you show how you can intervene and change things on the fly. A great example to wet anyone's appetite .
I noted the omega symbols on the trackplan what are they?

Thanks Brian, the video is also for use at a model railway club that wants me to give them some take on automation and I will edit some bits out to show what can be done - I couldn’t operate that many trains at the same time manually!

the omega symbols show tunnel mouths, Xander is also considering creating some dotted track symbols to allow for creation of hidden track that would go between the tunnel mouths.

Very nice colouring, I love the flow into the back scene, trees and rocks a re very natural 🙂

looks like the passengers need their warm coats on. I like the shunting options. 

Your room looks much tidier than mine 😃

I can see your head, no station masters cap 🙂

There are loads and loads of good photographing opportunities, I could spend ages in there, you have worked your orders really nicely for good flow.

Intersting to see the track plan live at the same time too.

All round lovely work and planning, congratulations on a beautiful layout.

As you do the last scenic area, yes you know it is coming, I would love to see pictures of the build 🙂

Yes it has solid potential for a believable picture, the perspective works well, and I would be tempted to retake it  at the proper eye level for in the layout. As a temporary measure only, if you have some ballast sat unused, you could sprinkle the smallest you have over the base near the tree line, and some green turf. I love the embedded track, a lot of work, but it shows really well here, I would also add some of the lichen torn into smaller bits for perspective to cover the join on the grass hillside,, a triangular wider at the bottom thinning to the top, would stop the line standing out, you could even cut it back a little and match the rock face.

Is the building on the left too short for the trains to run under? If so using wood you could extend the legs.

Although single colours are often seen in real life and successfully on layouts, shades of green often look more realistic, you could if you wish (I emphasis if you wish) lightly glue couple of the lichen and sprinkle a complimentary green turf on the lichen, or even dip it in thinned black / brown it tends to give the bushes some depth, a fine paint brush can go heavier on the branches, if the mood takes your fancy.

These are options only for consideration, because quite frankly you are doing a marvellous job without 'help'. 😃
