Looks very impressive. What have you made the viaduct out of? Is it 3D printed?

got lots of stone work to do and to also paint the drain pipes and irons that also make up the design.

Will keep you posted.

HI T gauge lovers

Whilst now that i am also working from home I can now start to work on this project a lot better.

Please the upto date track formation as this will inprove certain running feactures in that I can have one blue controller for the hole thing.

Track over the Ribblehead Viaduct will be a single lane , so that it is for modern running since the later 80's. :D

Graham
