Invernevis
« on: April 16, 2018, 08:50:24 pm »
Hello,

I thought it was probably time to add some photos of my layout Invernevis to this forum.

The layout is based upon the original station at Fort William and is set in a 10 year window loosely centred around 1980. We've been out and about for nearly a year now at exhibitions around the South West, with the next show booked for Plymouth in June.

These photos were taken by Andrew Burnham from Continental Modeller, who was manning the Peco stand at a recent exhibition. He kindly sent me the photos and permission to use them here.

Thanks

David

Very atmospheric, you have captured the highland waterside terminus vibe beautifully :thumbsup:

Keep the photos coming - do you have a track plan you can share?

Many thanks for these photos of a station which holds fond memories for me from winter sojourns in the area in the 1980's.

Very evocative recreation of great quality. :thumbsup:

Hi David,

Fantastic. Just my mug of cider. Really lovely. I'm trying to model France by the sea but great inspiration.

Thank you for posting.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I've been following this build on RMWeb. Good to see it hear to.

Great modelling. Just a pity the diesels are blue, but I guess we all have to be marked down for something  :D

Thank you for sharing these excellent photographs of your splendid layout.  I wish BR (and the local council) had followed your example and kept the proper station at Fort William, rather than the present effort.

Best wishes.

John

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Fantastic stuff!  The BR blue period prior to sectorisation is a firm favourite of mine.

Couldn't agree more. @David81 this is one of best-looking layouts I've seen for a long time.

Even better, you could sneak a preserved Black 5 onto the layout with those green and white West Highland coaches and have a railtour without looking the least big 'wrong'!

Can we assume that the DJM Class 17 will be on your shopping list? It'd look fabulous parked here, perhaps with two failed engines waiting to be rescued!

Cheers, NeMo

Now that would be prototypical :D
It also explains why they went around in pairs so often.
