Yes, thatís looking good. I too like the ratio footbridge - it sits well on the station.
It seems that the local populace have a liking for purple cars!
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

The footbridge looks great. Has a real Southern feel about it, probably helped by the colours.  :D

I have been busy over the last few days starting on the scenics on the East end of the layout as it is the most difficult area to reach and needs to be completed before I add the control desk which will make even harder to reach.

The speed of your progress on this project is affecting my clothing!  Woops!  There go my socks again - blown off!
"When in trouble, when in doubt, run (trains) in circles..." etc.
There, doesn't that feel better? 
Lovely!

PLYMBRIDGE:- I have progressed the East end scenic a bit more this week, The forest has developed at the back, some trackside fencing has been done, another set of cottages built and embedded in the ground, I still have the window sills to add to the cottages.

Plymbridge:-I have been busy over the last few days, the East end of Plymbridge is now more or less complete, I have noticed I need to run the mini vac over it again I have missed so overspill of static grass. No doubt I will find lots of small details to add as time goes by.

Diane you put us all  to shame the speed at which you build your layouts  now youve retired you should start your own business up building layouts for those that dont have the time or skill to build their own ,you would make a lot of money ,but dont tell the taxman hes had enough money from.you all your working life.
