I've finally got around to doing something about the unfinished bridge over the River Duff. Originally it was a two arch bridge stone built affair but the back story says it was destroyed in an air raid late in WW2 so a cheaper more utility steel girder replacement was built to keep the all important whisky traffic moving... and here it is. It's almost finished, it just needs a few more bushes planting to complete the picture.







and my favourite picture from this afternoon's activities:

I can't quite put my finger on why, I just like it  :)

Thatís a great scene. I love the little sailing boat and I agree, that final photo really works well.
Thanks for sharing.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Very nice work, a bit Caledonian Canalish , is that the West Highland tourist coaches being hauled?
One of them is (or was ) a  holiday accom coach near Loch Awe I think, happy days! A good few years
 ago me and my pals travelled about the Highlands camping and Munro bagging, if the train was busy we sat 
on the floor of the brake, nowadays the trains from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Oban, Fort William , Inverness
etc have about as much passenger and luggage space as a tube train...Ö.

I seem to have missed this thread thus far - what a fabulous layout! I wish I could do scenery half as convincing. I agree with others - it really ought to be on the exhibition circuit but it looks like getting it out of the man-cave might be an issue... You'd have a struggle getting it in that car, too.  :hmmm:

Great work.

Cheers,

Chris

 Yes and all we need is a herd of red deer spooked by the train, surprisingly
common near Rannoch and Corrour, (can you buy N gauge deer ?)

Amazing. This whole thread is painful. Such achingly beautiful work. Well done! (Makes me hate myself, but that's a "me" problem!)  :NGaugersRule:

I've been busying myself in the garage tonight, mauling a sheet of hardboard into manageable sized pieces in readiness for a 16' ish continuous photographic backscene (that's the plan anyway). So far it's going well... fingers crossed.


While I was in there, I decided a couple more photos would be in order, some small details on the layout that probably aren't immediately noticeable.

The couple walking their dog on the beach and the old lady wondering if it's their red Ford Anglia that's knocked her grandson's bike over.


Two of the local scallies having a camp out at the derelict bothy by the beach.


Thanks for looking  :beers:
