It has been a long time since the last layout video, here is a look at what has changed and tour of what it looks like now plus some ideas for the next steps. I later found out it was -5 when I filmed this and I could see my breath as I spoke!

LNER Azuma IEP Class 800 800104 Test Run at Peterborough February 26th 2019
A walk along LNER’s new Azuma while stopped at Peterborough before making its departure north, possibly to Aberdeen via Grantham if the display was accurate. Only had an old mobile which died half way along and had to change to another phone, which is why there is a cut mid-walk. At the end we see the Azuma depart under diesel power (pantagraph down). Looking through the windows we can see the weights under seats, presumably to simulate passengers.
Weekend Engineering 9 – Short Layout Update
A short update on the layout, mainly about the bridge line along the back of the station. Sorry this video is so late, after filming the roof started to leak and we had to get the entire roof replaced on the layout building. This video was filmed before all that happened but not edited, and it got pushed back. This is also the reason I have not uploaded much recently. Next video I’ll talk about that a bit and hopefully have some progress on the layout.
South West Trains – Woking – October 2016 – Christmas – January 2017
Some clips taken at Woking between October 2016 and January 2017, including some of the festive changes to trains and destinations. Mostly Class 159, Class 158 and Class 444 Desiro.
Weekend Engineering 8 – Station Area & Retaining Walls
It has been a while since the last update, not much progress this time around as I have been too busy with work and repairing the building the layout is in. Sorry for the muffled sound, I used a new microphone for this episode but it appears it didn’t work right, I tried to correct most of it in software but still a bit off.
