  1. Now that’s a sensible suggestion. I like it.
  2. Would something as simple as a tree work to break up the unwanted sight line?
  3. What’s the story with the deadly blue boxes? Also, is CKD short for Completely Knocked Down or is it an obscure Eastern European rail company I’ve not heard of before?
  4. This thread is dangerous, my delight in the story telling and the sheer fun on show, made me inadvertently () take a look at models by the big M on eBay… I’ve not succumbed yet, but it’s a slippery slope.
  5. Ah, this will be the evening Herr B persuades the local seismologists club to examine the sub-strata. Alas for Herr B, nothing will be found…
  6. I have to say that I rather liked option A
  7. The colour is perhaps a bit dark, but offers a nice “ frame” to that end of the view, so I’d be tempted to leave it as is.
  8. I was thinking about this, the Swiss et al had recognised the benefits of electrickery in the mountains early, And the Southern had plenty of experience with both overhead and third rail, so why wouldn’t the enterprising folk of little Switzerland experiment with overhead (and possibly the rack) for the steep climbs out of Combe Martin

  11. So much character as ever, and I can imagine hear the track in the yard creaking and groaning under the weight of the spaceship...
  12. Apologies for laughing, but anytime I build a layout it rapidly seems to become a complicated expensive shelf, so I get this, totally!
  13. Given the added drag the reverse curve must induce, I reckon that is incredibly successful.
  14. I did have my heart in my mouth there at the end
