Great updates Keith, and also loved the play on song titles, a lot of Alchemy happening on Somnel :)

Hmmm, Alchemy, not an album in my collection. Lots of tracks, bit of a challenge there...

The bridge steelwork fabricators continue to fiddle, but the terraformers have been in for the first pass of the next rock formations. The road foundations have also been completed:

Looks really good.
Steady progress.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you Chris and Martin. As you say, steady progress. Mrs keithbythe sea is quite happy with this as she is worried that when I finish this layout I will be looking to build another one  :no:
I donít know if you are fully retired yet Martin, but since I did in March I seem to have even less time...

Not quite Keith.
I finish my working life at 11.30 on Thursday Nov 2nd. Mrs PP is then taking me out for lunch.
As Iím self employed, Iíve been winding down for some time but Iíll be glad to reach the big day now.

The terraforming team have been experimenting with the next rock faces. South of the harbour the geology is dominated by volcanic ash deposits. This has posed an interesting challenge. Hopefully the trial and error process(es, and very many of them...) has resulted in something vaguely realistic (the edges need significant "tidying")...

Keep up the good work Keith.

Hi Martin
Have you noticed the rock strata on the east cliffs on Porthtowan beach. From the horizontal to vertical within a few feet. Only five miles from Carharrack. Will need to be there at low tide unless you have surf board!
Regards
Geoff

That's a very nice formation, Keith.

Takes me back to my student days!

All the very best.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Thank you John. I guess that you arenít a geologist since you speak of your student days? Perhaps a geographer or engineer maybe?  :hmmm:
