looking good to answer question ....


. Im not into cliffs, seaside scenes, though they look beautiful on layouts with them. im more a townscape / city type modeller. there are various techniques, products that you can use.

i wiould take your time. but here is one idea :

You don't have to reply you know...!

Cliffs (like trees and pylons) are one of those things where scale height would look ridiculous, so it's a bit of a personal preference. I'd be reluctant to go more than 6", but would actually say that hills generally look better than cliffs in model form, particularly if you're having a tunnel going into them (you'd not normally tunnel directly into a cliff face IRL - where would it go!?).

I said directly into, ie perpendicular to the main cliff face, rather than parallel to ;)

Plenty of examples of the latter though; Dawlish springs to mind!

The other tunnel station and cliff that springs to mind is Ventnor on the IOW.
A compact terminus with a frequent service until Beeching arrived on the scene but good for modelling idea.

Baseboard looks good and sturdy foam will give a good scenic base

have fun !

Ok guys so a chap from a forum has come up with this idea (copy and paste in coming)
My question is with my base board how it is rite now How would make this work for the levels?
Plus what your thoughts over all


"I may have cracked it, at least to my way of thinking.
At the least all the elements we have been playing with have come together in sensible and comfortable order.
Nothing is squeezed: the storage loops are longer, the minimum radius is 11" and there's more sea/beach.
Only one gradient. About a 3" drop with no problem, allowing an inch to make the storage loop cover reasonably rigid.

The idea? Put the return loop at low level, with the storage tracks at the front, under the sea!



The sea will probably been in two sections, (with the join covered by a short pier?)
The yellow oval gives shore-line scenery with a headland lower-right.
The hidden section for yellow upper left is principally so that a train can be held there while a train passes directly between the station and the storage loops.

The cliff can now be as high as you like.
With a seated operating position it could be high and completely open behind.

Chris."

Thanks Chaps
