Been a while since I've touched Remagen, partly due to a long holiday to China, and partly due to my not-so-local model shop being out of stock of 'n' gauge track.
Anyway, finally got an hour or so on it this evening and pushed ahead with scenery. This is the east back side where the track runs under the Erpeler Ley. I've toned down the grass a bit, added the barbed wire and a few bushes. It's not far off being ready for the trees.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Great work, Al.
Not that I need any for my layouts but more out of curiosity - what did you make the barbed wire out of please?

Great work, Al.

It's made from12v 17amp wire. Cut 6" length, strip the insulation off, then wrap each strand around the paintbrush to make a core. paint a nice shade of rush and glue into place. Simple, but takes absolutely ages.... :goggleeyes:

A significant day today. I got Remagen's baseboards configured and bolted together in 'home layout' mode. The only special board is the small corner one which takes the track off the west bridge abutment onto the upper loop under the Apollinariskirche church.

A couple more significant milestones reached this week. First, the Erpler Ley foliage is complete and it's now ready for trees. I estimate I need about 80 to get the coverage I want.



And second, the 6th and final baseboard is built and bolted into place. Now I can get on with some track laying.
