The B&W pics do add to the atmosphere lots :)
The lattice work on the footbridge, is incredibly fine - Is that an etched kit, or similar?

Thanks for that, the footbridge is by Lochgorm Kits.  It's quite fidgety to assembly and I really wish I'd discovered solder paint prior to constructing it.

Not much to report recently, except that work has commenced on the Snow blowers which reside just beyond the station on the Inverness side.  Apparently these were designed to deflect the wind away from the line to prevent it being fowled by drifting snow - although I'll stand corrected if need be........
 
In reality these are positioned just beyond the points however my points are a tad closer to the station than they should be and are just out of shot.



Cheers

Superb!!!

I have passed over the place a good few times but never managed to take any pics so far which is shocking considering I'm not that far away.  I'm very envious over your landscaping techniques.

They look great! Are they made from styrene strip?

This really is very nice, a railway in the landscape. If only I could create something similar, great work am looking forward to updates.  David

Yes styrene strip in the main, sizes just guestimated for a few photos I found online.  In reality all the uprights are made from rails, however to keep construction as simple as possible I've only used code 40 rail for pairs at either end as it's a lot quicker to stick plastic to plastic than plastic to metal.

Here's a shot from today showing the almost finished article sitting in place with the glue drying.  A dark wash yet and a bit vegetation will finish off.

Excellent work. Good idea of just using the rail on the ends!  :thumbsup:

Highly realistic. Excellent work.

I had a long overdue running session this morning and took some snaps.  Not much visible progress over the last few week, a few tweaks to the station building and small coal yard has appeared on the Wick side next to the North box.  Signals have also been started from MSE components and some mast can be seen in the pics below as i try to determine what height "looks" best.

Excellent pictures of a really good layout.
Great stuff.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
