The bridge is made up from several kits by the Japanese company Greenmax. I ordered them via eBay - I think from an eBay shop called Plaza Japan. Hope this helps.

One of the attractions of being a relatively new member of the Forum is when a 'new' layout appears.  Tempsford is new to me as the previous post was some months before I was told about the Forum.  And what a fabulous layout it is!  The basics of it are the same as the layout I am building (continuous run, through station, scenic staging yard, Kato track) but on a bigger scale and much further advanced.  Tempsford is looking excellent and I will learn much from it.

Many thanks for posting and all best wishes.

John
Thanks for your kind words. I look forward to seeing how your layout develops and we can both learn from each other. I still have a ton of things to do before I can even think about some of the finer details. The biggest challenge I have is working out what order I should do things!

This looks really good. I like the way that you have incorporated a reasonably sized station without making it look too cramped.
Itís a lvely layut. More photographs soon please.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Christmas Special

A Heritage NER Class R 4-4-0 pulling a rake of LNER teak coaches drifts through Tempsford on a Christmas rail tour on the down line heading towards Doncastle. Thank you Santa!!

Thank you for the splendid photograph of the lovely 'R' 4-4-0.  I have one as well, but in early LNER livery as a 'D20'.  It would be very nice indeed if Union Mills was to release a few locomotives in pre-Grouping liveries. 

Thanks again for the excellent photograph.

Best wishes.

Building up the terrain:

Over the last few days I have taken a break from the fiddleyard area and moved back over to the main scenic section. Having laid a foundation of polystyrene blocks, the next step was to smooth them off, cover the edges with plaster and give the whole area a coat of paint. At the same time I have marked in where the road will go, established a small stream and built into the base a road over stream bridge. Here are some pictures showing progress so far:

Looks like cunning use of a Peco bridge portal sunk into the landscape, Bob. Neat idea :thumbsup:

Looking really good.
You seem to be creating a vision of space and open-ness really well.

Well spotted. I had to reduce the height of the bridge by about an inch to bring it into line with the landscape.
