Hi again,

Few more pics, closer pic of the Tutera junction,




closer pic of Platja de Teixir station



Pic of where Port de Regleun will be built in the future (where all the tools and clutter is)




More later, don't want to push it.

Also there will be edits as can't remember exactly what the photos are  :)

Still happy though,

Cheers weave  :beers:

You've obviously got the hang of this now.
Keep those pictures coming.

Hi all,

Last of the pics for the moment but hopefully more at the Weekend. I have drawn a map of Izaro but can't remember how to upload it  :dunce: but will do that in the next few days and using a few of the previous pics it'll be easier to explain what I'm trying to achieve.

Couple more of the previously seen trains...









...and this is the 'El Gaitero' restaurant. It's a mish mash of kit bash, scratch build (maybe) and obvious bought items. It's not quite finished yet. I've got more tables and chairs but after a tidy up I can't find them. Also the outside bar on the right needs a roof so the punters don't burn and the beer and Asturian cider doesn't get warm.

The restaurant will obviously be set in both eras of the layout. The owners are currently in Cornwall attending a Samphire Masterchef competition in 1962 so hopefully all the building work will be completed for their return (with hopefully the Chelsea Girls +) and then train pics of that era to follow.



Cheers weave  :beers:

PS. The track behind will be in a tunnel in case you were thinking of cancelling your reservation  :D

Oh, and a beach at the front!

Pity about the tunnel.  I was hoping to watch the trains go by as I enjoyed my meal!
With kind regards

Thanks guys,

Laurence, the tunnel mouth will begin just before the sharp curve to give the impression of going straight on so you can watch the trains from your patio table




The beach station is based very very loosely on Sant Pol de Mar way down the coast, a beach I'd love to go to...

I won't be able to do the buildings probably as don't have enough room and Spanish type buildings are hard to find. Have got some Tomix apartment blocks that look like Med hotels so they will appear somewhere later.

Keith, San Miguel, Estrella Damm etc., you name it we got it! Saying that, Martin, not sure about tge red wine but we'll try and get some in  ;).

Thanks for the interest.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hi all,

Have been working on the area around the restaurant but nothing really pic worthy. I've also set up a test track in the area in front of the window where Tutera station will be eventually . All a bit chaotic with locos and coaches everywhere seeing what works and what doesn't. Will have a tidy up this week and post more pics soon.

These photos are really for me as I can't go up to the train room too late as the dogs go bonkers and wake my wife up. Tutera station is a long way off but loosely based on Tarragona. Tarragona is a through station and Tutera a terminus but pics give me inspiration for future planning.

Tarragona station....

Original layout pic...


As I said more pics with slight progress at the weekend, hopefully.

Cheers weave  :beers:

PS. Think I'll have to find some sort of port backscene. Not sure, still planning.
