Here are links to a couple of videos of the layout I am planning in:

The outside loop will mainly be used to run my renovated 4052 loco with three Panorama coaches with custom deails.

Great! Looking forward to more pre-event teasers!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Looks like a great layout, very nice to have two trains going at once

Will do, Elaine, asap.  I'll start thinking now.

Last week I took over the chapel floor for a couple of days to lay the track out and do tests on clearance etc.  Here are a couple of links:

I've since abandoned the sidings go leave room for a small town.

The raised line in the background is a shuttle to the harbour and beach.

Nice layout. I think the folded dogbone works really well for exhibitions since it allows some variety of movement in a pretty small space.

Thank you Tim and VK.   If all goes to plan, the raised line will end in a seaside pier with ice cream cafe and boats.
