Actually, Chris, I think Ramsbury sounds a very good name. Maybe, you could have a silhouette of a ram cut into the hillside above the town? 8-)

Well I managed to force myself, I have made the final corner module and have even painted it with primer. Not much choice really, it was make the board or watch the dreaded x factor with the wife, I can not stand that program.

Railway modeling is an excellent cure-all. Take care of yourself and get better soon. :thumbsup:

More painting today of the final module(for now). I have also been looking at the viaduct module, it would be a good idea to do the scenery behind the viaduct before I fix it in place and with track. I am making a small pipe bridge to go over the river, I have taken pics of a local one which is a arch with support rods and is made out of concrete. I just need something to disguise the wood frame behind the viaduct especially where it goes over the river, you will not be able to see it close up I just need something to give the elusion of a bridge,work in progress.

Yes a bit better Chris, I think the worst is over. I have been tyding the rom today, two stones in one, at the same time make more room for the layout so I can set the full layout up when I start to lay the track and not havve to worry about taking it down so I can get out of the room.
I have been working on the viaduct section too the wood frame at the back of the viaduct, I have made a small pipe bridge. There are a couple round here going over the river's, they are made of concrete and form a arch with hangers for the lower section which supports the pipe. It looks ideal to disguise a square shaped piece of wood. I made the concrete arch out of black mounting card with some bits of wire painted to represent the hangers. Also more varnish on the river especially at the front which is a new bit that needs to be patched in. Pics to follow when it starts to look like it should.

Hi Chris,

Just picking up on this thread again and its looking good. With regards to the station name, how about Tupsarse. I beleive that's what the locals called Ramsbottom back in the day.

Regards,

John P

Thanks guys for the comments, and John I see you are in America but you are correct, that is a name used in refference to Ramsbottom, obviously you are from over here to know that. Another is Heywood is known has Monkey town and people from Wigan are Pie eaters. I  must stress that pie eaters is a name used not in refference to pies, I do know the story.
Well today on my railway I have been working on the first the viaduct board, a bit more painting. Also more woodwork on boards, I fitted back scenery boards to another module and fitted catches to connect the boards. I am setting all the boards up with bus wires and connectors and catches etc. I can then set all the boards up ready to lay some track, then the fun begins. I have realised I should get a decent station on the 4' board, because the corner boads either side of the station, if I dedicate them to each side I actually gain nearly 1' extra length including curves and how I plan the station. Quite a few stations in the real world have curves leading into the station. I am just exploring all my options as usual I have not made up my mind or planned it yet.

Curved platforms always look far better than straight ones to me, but it can be very tricky avoiding a huge gap twixt platform and rolling stock - MIND THE GAP!
