It is the Tauern Railway Tunnel. This is a quick mock-up of the new tunnel portal in place. I think it looks about right.

Not posted an update for a few weeks. Mainly due to having been preoccupied and Paul Staplton's HO China Rail layout, which we took to the Bristol Slow bank holiday weekend. But with Beijiao back home, I'm back onto Remagen and progressing on with the Tauern Tunnel portal. The cladding is now finished and first coat of paint. I've still got to make the carved crown that sits above the lettering, I'll probably have that by the end of the week. Then is a couple more costs before it gets fitted to the layout and landscaped in.

Just catching up with this thread and your fine workmanship. :thumbsup:

How do you achieve the lettering across the portal? It looks most impressive.

So, I can buy the tiny lettering, but where do I get the eyesight and steady hand to position them so well? :hmmm:
 :D

Make up a wire jig to hold letters in place whilst applying liquid cement?

Or alcohol ( rubbed on or oral) is a good muscle relaxant!

Here are a few pics of the two BR05's which can be seen running on the layout during shows.

 Both are Arnold models. The black one is pretty much standard, apart from a bit of weathering. The streamlined one had undergone some major work to remove the lower half of her streamlined casing. There's photos of the build earlier in this thread.

Very nice models Al. :thumbsup:

Coincidentally I was looking at a book all about the BR5's in a local bookshop just a few days ago. It was a secondhand book, all in German, so my understanding was limited. :(

After far too long an absence, I'm finally able to get back into me workshop and continue work on Remagen. So here's a long overdue update. As well as the LNER stuff I've been filling my time with, I've also been working done if the smaller details for the layout.



this one here should answer the question of what happened to the Lancaster crew.
