We hope that you have been enjoying the Channel 5 show, broadcast at 8pm every Friday night. The viewing figures have been fantastic. Over one million unique viewers for every show. Amazing! Model railways have never had so much mainstream TV exposure. It's great to see so many people of all ages, ability and gender having a go at the almost impossible task of building a model railway in 24 hours.
Regular viewers will have noticed plenty of PECO products in use, not least of all the track and Pecoscene Static Grass. Have you spotted anything else? Here are a few things that we have noticed...
A building constructed from Wills Modern Industrial Building kits (SSM300), and the SS80 Wills Viaduct kits make this eye catching scene on the Diesel Dynamos layout.
Finishing touches being made to a Ratio 547 Coaling Tower.
Parkside wagons kits under construction....
The Fawley Fliers made effective use of the PECO SmartSwitch system: their turning water cranes (Ratio 413) came to life before our very eyes!
The next show is broadcast on Friday 2nd November. Watch Team Aberdeen, The Shunter Guys and Team Wakefield vie for the last place in the final! It'll be fun!
