Part four of our diesel depot video series is here as we take the layout another step forward with the installation of DCC Concepts ground signals, Layout 4U yard lights and full interior lighting in the main depot buildings to bring the scene to life. Join us for part four today.
LIGHTING can transform a model railway layout and that's exactly what we wanted to do with Natford TMD. The 'OO' gauge layout was already looking good, but adding the next level of detail to the scene could take it to another level and improve it still further.
Above: Interior lighting adds to the atmosphere inside the depot while a spare Class 47 body mounted on Bachmann Scenecraft jacks with a West Hill Wagon Works bogie below adds interest.
The project is a three phase process covering the installation of ground signals at the depot entrance followed by wiring of the yard lights and finally fitting interior lighting in the diesel depot building and office block.
