Very good detail there paul. Do you have any more photos of your layout and a trackplan. If so start a new thread.

The Stone eefect on the outside of the builings is Matcalfe stone sheet. The window surrounds are drawn in Autocad then printed out as are the window glazing panels which are printed onto clear acetate

Great work. All the machinery remembers me a bit the old times here in Luxemburg when ore mining was the big thing here.

I will continue to show progress on both the Bascule bridge and the Colliery on this thread.
Work has continued on the Bascule bridge, the two counter weights being made of wood and not concrete are not quite heavy enough so a 13 ounce brass bar had to be added.

I have decided to try motorise the bridge using the same method the real bridge used, that is two operatng arms lift the bridge up and down. plastic chain and sprockets were used to replicate the rack and gear system used on the real bridge.

That is one fine model. It makes the church and bus depot look like "N" gauge stuff. A very good pat on the back to you.

Outstanding.

This is an excellent way to bridge the entrance. Well done.
