Hello,

the last few days I reworked the trackplan for Ullapool.
The last version was to complex. But sometimes there is help by coincidence.
These was the Thread Far North Line at Rmweb. There the author recreates Thurso and Helmsdale
I liked the Thurso track plan, and I adapted it for my needs.
HHere I show you the reworked trackplan. My station would be settled between Quay Street, Argyll Street, Garve Road and Shore Street 
at the real Ullapool, but Shore Street wouldn't be there on my Ullapool version

Last weekend, we held the second Great-britN meeting at Lohr.

We had modules for a scottish branchline and a busy singletrack mainline terminating at Penzance.

Here you could see my pictures from the meeting.

It's been now some time after the Great-britN modular meeting.
Since then I decided to scrap my Borve modules, which where a junction station.
So because our group lost a junction, I decided to build a simple junction module.
Here is the actual result.

It's getting there Marcus, keep the pictures coming. :)
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

The stone walls look really impressive, are they a kit or are you scratchbuilding them yourself?

Hello Galway,

the stone walls are from Javis. But I didn't placed them straight from the bag. I primed them with black and then
used diffrent greys and brown and white colours to drybrush the walls.
Here is a link to Javis walls sold at Ebay.

I've got no connection with the seller.

The combination of the ground cover, colours and dry stone walls looks smashing, Markus.
Well done :thumbsup:
