I hereby present my most recent town.
I have been a little less active lately on EB, but I was either busy studying or building this layout, and I think it has turned out pretty well.
This is my first time to include 9 volt/4,5 volt trains in a layout and I had great fun constructing the tunnel with lots of technic beams and other pieces I do not use very frequently such as batteryboxes and even a 4,5 v batterytender, just to gain some height for the trains to fit underneath. The roadplates forming the roof of the tunnel can hold quite some weight, and I built some heavy houses on top of them, including Market Street. All with an Amsterdam-feeling.
With all the harborplates I bought recently I made the cargo-area for the freighttrains to 'dock' and deliver their goods.
My intention was to create 'two different worlds' in one layout, one of a busy looking townstreet and one with a more industrial feeling, separated by a height difference.
In most of the houses I made 9 volt lights, powered by an extra speed regulator as you can see in one picture: showing many wires... I will take some midnight pictures soon to display this feature.
Comments are very welcome of course!
