Thought I'd finally get a layout topic going, no name yet.

Inspiration came from a now gone line near Manchester.

I do like those "I" beams. The detail is brilliant! :)

Thanks Doug, That was a very fiddly task.
Think the strips of plasticard where about 1mm and a pain to glue down :evil:

Next step is adding the brickwork before glueing down then building up the embankments.

That's a very nice brick finish. What have you used to achieve it?

I downscaled some N gauge brick styles.
I did the main structure in card then glued the printed brick on.

Embankment starting to build up.

I do like the look you are getting here, and the ballasted track is particularly effective.

More fading signs of once prosperous times :D

The grass is still a bit wet so has a light colour at the moment.

I've been using some noch flock.
Have two greens and a brown. I mix some amounts together so it looks a bit more natural.


Finally painted the girders, next is the other abutment.
