Blimey Al!! What detail!!,  :greatpicturessign: absolutely brilliant mate!!

How long is the finished model going to be (I spied the bridge on the worktop)  :)

FW

Mis-read your post, sorry.

Length of the layout is 8.6metres. The bridge is 2 metres between abutments with the Erpeler Ley standing 1/2metre above it. At the far end there will be a similar hill, although not as high, hiding the other reversing sidings. I'll dig out a track plan and post up later.

Hi Al,

Just come across your thread and it is brilliant.  The Bridge at Remagen is one of my favourite movies and you have caught the main features brilliantly.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Many thanks

All the military vehicles are from Arrowhead Miniatures. They are top quality 1:144 scale models. Mostly WW2 stuff. The range isn't huge, but the basics are there.

Al,

In your endeavours have you come across any air raid sirens ?  Looking to stick one on top of a fire station.

I've not seen a n gauge air raid siren model on my travels, but cpulsar be too difficult to make one. There's plenty of photos on the net of arp posts. Most of them appear to be a sandbagged shelter with siren, sand buckets and a deck chair.
If you send me a pick of the fire station I might be able to make you something.
