This is starting to get confusing!! We appear to have two layouts being built that feature the same viaducts on the Settle to Carlisle line. Hopefully, we're not going to get a layout war.. :? :? :? :?

Graham....any chance you can detail progress on your layout on a separate thread, please. It will then stop simple folk like me getting confused between the two.

Hi Doug
That is no problem as I have only the viaducts made ,but when I have done more work I will make new thread to my Ribblehead layout, I was just showing my viaducts.

Good luck with the layout.

Regards
Graham

Hi Graham

Hands off my thread!!!! I'm just waiting for some 3D prints before progressing to track laying but giving me time to think over scenery etc, which is the most important thing to me.

No need to be angry about it as Doug has told me to set another thread going. :!:

Apologies, my sense of humour. Missed the smiley face at the end which would have made more sense. :D

Will be interesting to see 2 different viewpoints of the same area.

Now if I'd not been on the phone for the last half an hour (being invited to another show btw!!), I would have posted the exact same thing! :P ;) Even commenting about the missing smiley.

And as you say, Dave, It'll be interesting to see two different takes on the same line.

Nice to here that we can get along as we need to take all comments in and suggestions in.
Should be good to see the layouts in the final stage of yours.
:D

Hi all

Well with Christmas over I can now do a little work on the layout. Thanks to Doug I now how all 3 viaducts, Ribblehead, Dent and Arten Gill. They just need cleaning and painting as I have now sorted the roadbed issue I had. Got the scenery to start carving up, so hope to post some pics in a few days.

Dave

Impressive! This promises to be quite some layout. I can feel the gales and horizontal rain already.

This set of viaducts have been quite a challenge to produce....and have been some of the most detailed parts I have printed. See this thread for a more detailed look at how the first of the set, Ribblehead, was produced.

I also am looking forward to seeing these viaducts installed into their surroundings. Its one thing seeing the basic structure....but it only comes to life when the ground profile is added!

PS Dave hasn't included a photo of the small bridge crossing a small road that is close to Dent Head viaduct that I did as well!
