By the Shore of Lake Brienz - A Swiss Adventure in the 1960s

Marlyn what can I say, another stunning cakebox layout. The gaugemaster mat looks really good and sea looks so inviting. Well done brilliant modelling.:)

Back view of model before the backscene was fitted. I had to create two supporting piers for the dummy Dapol catenary masts.

Hi Kevin, I bought the gravel and grass mats for my earlier ‘tin-plate’ cakebox and thought they worked fine in the smaller scale for this more  ‘manicured’ landscape. :)

Photos for challenge! I still have some more tweaking to do, but time was up!!

Looks really classy, and it has a nice colourful look to it. Very attractive.

Thanks PaulRhB, Kevin and Northroader for your kind comments! It was a challenge to work in 2mm scale, but very enjoyable and I am also learning more about Swiss railways at the same time!

I’d suggest more ‘practical research’ :lol:

 

Always works for me ;)

Your photographs from your recent trip are wonderful and a great reference! I’d love a return trip to Switzerland, Paul! :) Maybe next year?

Then you can build a layout for this to sit in. I’d love to see that lake front expanded, the colours are spot on.

Think the layout would have to be two sided, if I was to model the Brünig line - one side as a lake shore view, the other on higher ground?

Excellent idea, I look forward to progress :D  I was having dangerous ideas on those exact lines after riding the Bernina . . .
