Superb work, Thanks for the update, love the trackwork and weathering you have done.  The point rodding looks great as does the landscaping and riverbed

A short running session on the layout today.

Superb photos. Many thanks for these examples of excellent scenic work and trains.

Some of those engineers wagons taken to Bodmin may have ended up at Cant Cove and some at Trepol Bay after being transferred to Wadebridge. 8-)

All looking most excellent!

The muted colours and general weathering gives it a real sense of atmosphere.

Ensign Elliott, your layout is disgustingly realistic. I have a book called (I think) Great Western Steam in Cornwall. It is all colour photos and focuses on the last few years of Cornish Steam. The thing is that the prototype pics look disturbingly like your layout in terms of colour, scenery, stock etc. You are something of an artist. You have captured the essence of Cornish Railways extremely well. FAIR PLAY!  :thumbsup:

Brilliant photos of a gorgeous layout, totally captures a particular time and place. Nicely muted colours, subtle weathering and lots of small details that you don't notice at first.  Love it.
