Tweed is not recommended as it can be a bit scratchy :hmmm:

If it's thorn proof then it's OK  :)

The bridge covered with stone paper, the walls still to be added. The track has now been singled.


This shows the colour of the stone better. The road is Scaelscenes platform modified in Gimp and the pavement is the platform edging stuck onto cereal packet then stuck on the road surface.


Withy Jct needs several track laying gangs urgently. :sweat:

It looks complex because of all the other track that is laid on top of it!

New arrivals from Cornwall being shunted at Durscombe.
Thanks folks.
The platform with the suicide leap at the end is a base of 10mm ply topped with 3mm balsa, The balsa was sealed with spray varnish. The surface is modified Scalescenes platform printed onto sticky-back paper. The slope down is made but not fitted.

Me too, Martin, Sam's Cider has a reputation for causing confusion.
