I wouldn't worry about the spacing of the plinths 8-)

I think that's a good idea!!. I did intend to have some sort of walled bridge and only two openings for roads, therefore I didn't really space the plinths out properly!!. The inside bridge has small arches while the outside one is more boxed in, as in the second picture!.
Enjoying the work, using used model boxes to make walls or the backing for printed wall sheets to go on.

Progress has been made, running trains in and around what is regularly a building site!!. Added a branch off (well two) onto the windowsill. One is for the passenger line (outer oval), and one connects to the inner oval via diamond crossing.
A card viaduct has been bought and modified to fit the curve!.

The tunnel in the far corner (where the wood blocks are), is more developed and uses a Metcalfe card kit for the tunnel entrances.

Will have to post more (updated) pictures soon. There is also a fourth track on the window sill, two for the passenger station and two as freight tracks.

That's coming on really well! Good use of space too by using the window sill

Thanks everyone. I'm trying to put something of everything that's in the local area, mainly coal for the old power station, the river, farming and some industry, probably a paper mill. Not going to go mad on these, don't have the space!!, just a little of each. :grin:

Wow, that is great progress Marky. I've been spending a lot of time on my layout in the last couple of weeks so I will have to start a thread like this one and post a few pics. Really like your viaduct - I desperately want one but would have to do some major reconstruction of the baseboard to fit one in, so I envy you!

Thanks Beany. Will look forward to your layout on here!!. The viaduct was a Metcalfe kit I picked up in Bedford. The main reason I had space for it was the legs I had (without spending loads) were shorter than the other sections had. So I jumped on the chance to make a bridge which I think you can see in earlier pics. I replaced it with the viaduct a month ago but had to cut one section in two to fit the curve!!. :grin: It was more of a luck than judgement thing!. :lol:
