Some good ideas there Alastair.

I previously modelled the station at Kyle a few years ago. If you are to model this, from my perspective, the main reason you would want to do this is to get the spectacular view of the Cuillin hills on Skye. In the image below the station is just visible on the pier at the bottom of the photo. The backdrop to this is spectacular and would form a crucial part of any layout based on this station. The view from the other perspective, the town itself, is pretty uninspiring. I know, I spent many a morning here waiting on the train.

There have been various plans published, one was in Railway modeller.
