Hi Paul

Your road up the side of your hill adjacent to the tunnel was the inspiration that I needed for my layout

Its that time of year when i like to have a little project to do indoors in the wam, the garage housing the layout gets quite cold. this winter i will start with my own wooden scratch built version of the Faller 120535 Bietschtal Bridge kit.

A very impressive structure - and it looks well built too. Well done.

Hi Paul,

Just had a laugh - Your passion for bridges, & I see your in Bridgend. Didn't notice that before.
Some great craftsmanship there.
