That is most impressive, and very, very GW.  :thumbsup:

Thanks, it is GWR heavy but need to research which other of the big 4 would of overlapped to add some variety

Whereabouts are you setting the layout as the only Bellshill I can find is in Lanarkshire and the only Glanmire I can find is in Co. Cork :confused2:

That allows scope for the Portpatrick-Larne Bridge - the model of which will probably be finished considerably earlier than the real one, if it ever comes to fruition  :D

But, if so, why so GW orientated? Like the OP I'd like to know where it fits with maybe other railway companies. :hmmm:

Well you got one correct,  it is the Cork station on Glanmire road that is the source inspiration for the Main Line station although with each redesign it is moving further and further away from it!
Bellshill just is a townland in Co Carlow where my family have a summer cottage. There is no railway in that area at all - I just liked the link with family. The small halt is going to be called Tinahealy and there is village with that name near Bellshill.
