It's a good exhibition to get to if you're anywhere near Glasgow. Plenty of inspiration for terrain.

Yes, so do I and with the availability of cheap, tiny cameras these days, you can get those great videos taken from the front of an engine. Cool....!

Shucks - you’re right, of course. And it means I fit right in with everyone else on this forum :D

Been watching these on YouTube, superb! Now they have car and boat systems too.

Great finds, Snappy, Old Fruit (didn’t see any boats, mind you ;) ). A couple of observations about the splendid motorway footage:

1. Those chaps all seem to be driving on the wrong side of the road.
2. The spacing between vehicles seem to be as bad as in real life - tailgating was n miniature  :D

Boats here (they even have water skiers!).

You're right about the tailgating, very dangerous!

Finding that one I came across this one, watch out for Hoffa Cement and Wicked Wandas!   :-*

That was some layout with quite a few little jokes like Hoffa Cement. Someone should buy the bloke who did the video a tripod, though. And maybe tie his legs together :) The boats weren’t really in the same class as the road and rail - those sailing dinghies speeding round in defiance of nature, for example.

Excellent find Doug, thanks for showing. I dream of an equally stretched layout in my attic...
If I only had a little more time.
