Isle Skye Railway modular layout
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:03:02 am »
Hello,

my name is Markus and I'm a german railway modeller. My friend Haeckmaen showed me your forum. I'm currently building a modular N scale layout, which is set on the
Isle of Skye.
The first modules are build by two friends and me in 2008 and in 2009 we showed the Isle of Skye Railway on the Intermodellbau 2009 in Dortmund. Since then some
other german railway modeller who have an interest in British Railways shared us, and now we've got the great-britN Modules.
Today I show you some pictures I took during some of our modular meetings.

And here are some pictures a friend took during the Intermodellbau 2009

Nice layout Markus and welcome to the forum.
I look forward to seeing more...
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!

Welcome to the forum.  The layout looks great.  One thing I'm yet to model is water, so seeing the superb job you've done under the bridge (especially with the rocks) is something I'll have to try and master too. :) :beers:

hi looks a great layout. Is the fidel yard split into three for transport with it being modular or is it for another reason?

Thank you for your replies.
The bridge module is not my own. It belongs to a friend of mine, as far as I know he built the water with two part epoxyd.
The fiddle yard is built in three modules, because of its portability.
My modules will be shown at next years Irvine Show of the Kilmarnock & District Modelrailway Club.

A fantastic long layout that really looks the part, particularly the lengthy run into the terminus station. . The pictures of the girder bridge over the river are superb.

In July we will held a modular meeting with most of your Great-britN modules. Here is the layout plan.
I also show you the layout scheme which a friend of mine made for the timetable planning.

With only about 2 Month until our Great-britN meeting, I started with the construction of the firt of the tree required modules. I called it Glenbogle Viaduct.
For the viaduct I used a Scalescenes kit. After the viaduct was built, I started the construction of the module.

The last week I was still on my module. Today I finished the contour of the landscape and gave it a brown basic colour.
