As I had run out of inset track for my French boxfile layout, I started playingf with a British HO idea. I had brought my 3D printed terraced buildings on a hill, and have painted them(still need more work), these show an advantage of having the track on the lid.
My Austerity loco has had a quick coat of black paint, but still needs HO couplings and some more detail.

and closer


The shop name is part of the 3D print, and therefore can be set to anything that will fit, but if it is too small it won't show up. The name is a tribute to Jack Nelson, well known for his LNWR themed dioramas, and his use of HO scale not OO scale.


The track will be laid on thin card or cork before ballasting, then stuck down onto lid9I have been told liquid in ballasting can warp the lid)

Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.
