Countdown to Corris 4

After much frenzied model making I can post the fourth and final episode in the countdown series. My Latin American tramway is sufficiently advanced to be able to take decent photos that give a fair impression  of what the finished item will look like. More importantly it's now at the stage where I wouldn't feel too embarrassed at it going on public display. there are a few jobs to tackle tomorrow, and many for after the show, but I can rest tonight as all looks to be under control.

Just to remind everyone that the tramway will make its public d├ębut this coming weekend at the Corris Model Railway & Toy Exhibition. Corris School 10:30 - 5:00 Sat, Sun and Mon, 27th, 28th & 29th August.

Countdown to Corris - 3

Well the in time completion of the Latin American tramway is going to be a bit of a knicker gripper, so I thought that I pop up some photos of a very tasty model that I know will be at Corris on the August bank holiday weekend, and every other day the railway is open for that matter. It's located in the station and museum at Corris, well worth a visit in its own right

It's the 009 model of the Corris Railway itself featuring scenes along the line; Pantperthog, Maespoeth, Corris and Aberllefenni. The model is static at the moment, but non the worse for that. I'm afraid that my photos don't do the even though I removed the glass from the case, you really have to see it to appreciate it.
