Looks good - some neat detail and all painted and weathered to give an overall, coherent, atmospheric consistency.

Do you have an overview or trackplan at all?

Love the detail - road surface is just what I want, what did you use.

Thanks

Wow! That was ten years when I laid the road, but from memory, the part under the bridge and running down past the goods shed was a very fine grey sandy substance from a scenic supplier, I don' recall the name. The rough cracked area in the front is just painted chipboard, the cracked effect is where I used to cut up plastic etc for the buildings.

Fantastic detailing Phil. The different elevation levels of the buildings give a great feeling of height of the topography.

The differnt shading & material of the rds & access routes add to the realism of what you've acheived here.

Its that good, I cant work it of your working on OO, P4 or O gauge.
Regards,
Steve

The sort of scenic detailing to perfection that is usually only seen on SMALL layouts! It really is very good.

Really like this layout, cracking blend of industrial and rural scenery which is often difficult to achieve.

Can only endorse comments to date - real character!

I particularly like the "Headroom 11' 6" " underbridge.
