So it's a river dockside (Think Totnes Quay or Lostwithiel) and will have a rather complex track layout (it's a test bed) with the dock having a cobbled surface. I want to use the Scalescenes Cobbles, TX31 (it fits with the period)
However cutting the sheet to fit in between the tracks would not get the exact look of how the real thing was laid (individual cobbles) I'm looking at photos like:
- http://www.flickr.co...nes/2569933108/ (although concrete shows the railing arrangement at the toe of the switch)
- http://www.flickr.co...N00/5154058022/ (also shows horse and cart being iused in 1953)
- And a photo in Anthony Kingdom's book of the Totnes Quay line where there appears to be gravel laid to the approximate top of the running rail.
So from those who have already done it, should I start:
- Cutting individual setts and laying them Pendon-brick-wall fashion?
- Scribing plaster/DAS?
- Ignoring the whole thing and cutting up Scalescenes sheets as it's too small to be noticed anyway in 4mm.
