I've been messing around with Photoshop, trying to conjure up a vision of yesteryear, as the local passenger train, unusually headed by a Fowler 2-6-4T, departs Lisburn Lane, sometime in the early 1960s.

Incidentally, I've been doing a bit of work on this tiny layout, assembling a new set of fiddle yard boards (complete with cassette-type storage) and re-converting to analogue control after a short-lived experiment with DCC. Once the trains are working satisfactorily again, I can start adding some more trees to the scenic area. Indeed, the aim is to create the feeling that this fictional location lies on the edge of a forest.
