A thought has been slowly wandering around inside my head, pausing for a sit down with a cup of tea etc over recent weeks (silly things, thoughts)

Basically - a length of track; a rolling road; loco on rolling road so wheels rotate when power is on; a painted and changeable back-scene that moves on something that's like an upright conveyor belt... there i've said it now.

Where's my hammer

Do it with a diesel and it'll be even easier. As the wheels are much less visible they don't need to turn. You could even use an unmotorised loco or railcar such as the Del Prado models. Just needs the conveyor belt scenery to scroll past it. Wink

PS - Ah good. Here comes nurse with my long sleeved pyjamas that lace at the back.
