Good clear video of the train. What camera did you use?

I like the waterfall and lake, too. Adds a lot of interest to the lower loop.
I used my phone. It's an iPhone 13. I've been really impressed by the camera on it!

Thank you! The waterfall needs building up some more and when it's planted I hope it has the effect I want!

Both iPhone and iPad these days take great pictures and movie. Rarely use anything else these days on my models. Plus I use them rather than a scanner as well.

In the picture, you'll see a previous attempt of mine to bend a rail by hand (bottom) and with a rail bender (top)....
You should be able to use the rail bender to re-radius the hand bent track Curtis....

Indeed rail benders are superb for sorting out wrong/poorly done bends and even making curves back to straights.

Yes, I straightened some ART curves that my late father brought for me just before he passed away.

I was determined to use the track on my layout somewhere, so they were 'unbent' and used in Pip's Yard.... thumbnail_20200523_165649.jpg
