Great detailing on the tunnel mouth!

Whats your technique used for hills etc, the marshmellow looking stuff?

I love the level crossing, I need one on a curve and could only find the Peco one but don't know the radius, such a simple idea I hope your dad won't mind if I borrow it.

Great pics and thanks.....one of these days you are going to have to show us how you made the 4 rail underground lines as they look brilliant.

Thanks for sharing,
