VIDEO: Building a Diesel Depot - PART FOUR

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.
