Sorry… It’s been a while… And not for the first time, I’m back. So, hopefully is Boltorr Road Halt. But no heartfelt excuses… they will emerge over time.
But a few things have been happening. I could no longer stand the terrible arch on the stone overbridge. This has been replaced with an iron bridge and leaves the layout ready for complete landscaping.
I also have a side project – T-Trak, something completely different, but more of that anon.
So. Time to tidy up, find the tools and materials I thought I’d lost and catch that train.
As is obvious by now, this railway is in another – albeit very similar – universe.
And this is a map of my particular corner of the multiverse.
While you’re reading this I am working to fit the Boltorr dam and rail bridge into the landscape before I can actually lay some track.
This involves making the contours look plausible and sealing the Brook so I can install “water” which will flow from the overflow outlet into the original watercourse. It’s not going to be a raging torrent. Just deep pools and appropriate rocks and plant life.
I’m going to have to make a slight permanent way realignment because, at the moment, Peco is only producing regular bullhead track turnouts.
