Not a lot of progress to report but I have completed lining the walls of one of my tunnel sections and started to bold the entrance supports, I have also started to put down a base mud colour ready for static grass I will put some line detail down this week as well as some ballast.
Hi Anthony, I'm enjoying following your thread the track flows well also the curves are large enough to enable smooth running, well planned. The flashing truck lights take the trick too well done you have progressed the layout really well.
Hey - the backscene works well with that Pendelino, with just the right kind of scale for the northern stretches of the WCML.
I've often wondered whether those hills are actually Beattock. And the earth looks the right kind of red for that tract of country.
That's coming along nicely Anthony with some nice steady progress.
Railway modelling is a hobby for life and I know very few modellers who claim to have actually 'finished' their layout. Personally, although I do enjoy watching the trains go by, the real enjoyment of the hobby comes mainly from the actual design and construction. I see no point in rushing things and ending up with a less than satisfactory layout which has constant running problems so slow but steady is the name of the game.
Looking really well now Anthony, especially the tunnel and embankment, plenty of scope for scenic work, hopefully get a bit of scenic done on mine today,maybe put the twin track tunnel mouths in position, and make the covering tube, or box, not too sure whether I will put industry or urban scene on top yet.
