It is a lovely picture and itís what has inspired my thinking so far. If I can make the model look a fraction as good as the picture Iíll be happy!

In the picture you can see where the baseboard foam is double height on the bottom. Thatís where it levels out before the bend. I had read about problems with incline curves so it put me off trying.

Thanks again for the comments.

I had to give a second look as when I wrote that I thought it was your model! I thought it looked realistic! I guess it was the immaculate condition of the train and the model like planks of the bridge...
