Footbridge – progress on Dudley Heath

Amazing how much time it takes to build one of these from styrene card! One advantage of N gauge is being able to use up all those small off-cuts of strip material which are too short for use in 4mm scale much of the time! The footbridge is inspired by (but not identical to) the one at Bescot Stadium. It’s taller than usual to allow for electrification, hence the Dapol Class 86 being used for height testing – with the pantograph raised.

Progress is being made, albeit slowly. Whilst the layout will not be ‘finished’ in time for Doncaster, it will have structures and scenery on it. Furthermore, it is fully operational! This begs the question: When is a layout ever finished? One thing I plan to avoid is cluttering it with too much detail!
