Malc, Nobby and jrb you are such cheeky fellows.
Clearly they are frisbees that the OO people have been chucking at our model.

Smashing work, Kirky. I really like the 'autumnised' trees but don't envy you guys the job of planting them all :no:

Thanks for the latest updates. Very good photos. It's looking very realistic, now. Plenty of excellent scenic work to be admired.

Looks very good. I particularly like the over bridge.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Guys
Ive been busy making headspan catenary today. No photos to show of that though.

Just some of more trees









and some watery pics











The watery areas will need some modeifying, extra folliage etc.

Cheers
Kirky

Very nice layout and a good length of trains can be run, the scenery looks very good especially the trees.

Thanks, Kirky. There are a lot of options how to model water and I'm researching which to use at Cant Cove.

Best wishes,
Chris

I did my river using the loo paper and pva technique, I am happy how it has turned out. My first attempt on my old layout using the solid stuff was a disaster it curled up at the edges, I think it was some Jarvis stuff. By the way every now and then I add another coat of acrylic varnish.

Hi
A bit of an update on catenary.

As you may well know, there is no headspan catenary available to buy, so essentially we were forced to either build our own or use something nothing like the ECML.
We opted to build our own.

Plastic was out as it was just too weak. So brass was used. 2mm H section from the excellent metalsmith.co.uk, thanks Barry.
The wires are thin brass rod, as thin as I could get away with, but clearly over scale. The register arms and the insulators are from N brasslocos. Excellent service there too. (We really do have some excellent people servicing our needs in the N gauge world!)

Here it all soldered together.



As you can see, its far from perfect, but I'm hoping that when it goes in the poor build wont be too noticable.

Heres a few together ready for painting.



First coat of grey. I just used humbrol primer.



The uprights have been given a coat of yukky brown and these are now ready for planting.



Ive built five. Now I have another seven to build when the rest of the H section arrives, hopefully tomorrow.

Cheers
Kirky
