Very nice - I think it will be some time before my layout looks anything like that. R-

Excellent! To me a model Scammell Mechanical Horse, Scarab or Townsman makes any layout even better!

Love this layout, I am hoping to achieve a similar level of realism in the scenery/detail.

Are you able to share how you've constructed your platform(s)?

I was recommended a metcalfe card kit, but it's not quite what I wanted (too much pattern for the main platform surface, the edging stone stickers keep peeling back up and the edge looks a bit pants as is just 3 layers of card....

Thanks,

Steve.

Very nice layout indeed. Must have taken many hours of patience!

Platforms. I made my own on the last layout from card and cutting stonework from card and glueing it on. Takes a while. The issue I had were the top surface as I didn't quite get the joins invisible enough. The sides were ok though. The first concern is clearance. One tries all ones stock and all works fine. Then along comes ones latest new loco or coach and !!!!

I made the platforms using a download from Scalescenes. In fact most of the scenery and buildings were from scalescenes. It only cost a few pounds and once downloaded you can print as much as you like.
I did try the paving stone finish on the platforms but couldn't get it took to look right as the platforms curve, so went with the plain tops which actually look better

Much Appreciated, keep up the excellent work!
