I have written a blog about my railways and posted pictures of the progress made.

I called them The Ringbalin Light Railway, G & HO divisions.

I have every intention to keep it up to date as I do things on them

Link to the blog is here if anybody is interested:


Some pictures on here as work continues.

Work has progressed on my layout and I have updated my Blog to show the progress I have made.

Some pictures of the latest work to whet the appetite.

Lowered track base to allow a rocky creek bed/gully to be created which will be crossed by a low trestle bridge (a couple of bents roughed in to get an idea)

Meadow at end of Low Trestle.jpg

A "meadow/paddock" area to be built under half of trestle and forming a bank for the gully

Thanks to be isolated a large amount of progress has been made on the layout.
Track has been secured to both trestles and some scenery underneath has been completed.

I am still contemplating an edge on the high trestle, I am now leaning toward leaving the front as it is and putting a walkway and safety rail at the back.

More work has been done as well on the laying of baseboards along the back fence and level change down the side fence.
I am trying to think of a way to disguise the face of the angle from the upper to the lower levels and also under the silver bridge. I am thinking of a rocky cliff face/ cutting face to hide the baseboard supports down the side fence any other suggestions/ideas most welcome.
