    Excellent work Ian! It reminds me of a bridge I saw in the Isle of Man a few years ago at Balaugh Bridge. It was part of the disused line from Douglas to Ramsey. We used to take our lives in our hands crossing it to get to a good vantage point for the bike racing :avatar:. Happy days!!

    Pete.

    Wow, that is looking good Ian, I better pull my finger out !

    Funnily enough, I ordered the same Scalescenes kit last Thursday night with a view of building something similar. Now I'll have to build something much bigger to compete ! :D

    Cheers, Gary.

    Its looking great Ian and oh by the way congrats on being POTW. Now guessing again... so I need to be South and West of the Manifold... so depending how far south that would take me into Shropshire and the Welsh Boarder. Hmm big area that... okey dokey my next guess goes on a former GW branch either out to Cleobury Mortimer, Much Wenlock or Lightmoor.
    cheers for now York Paul

    Congrats on pic of the week Ian,

    That bridge scene is looking amazing.......:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    You need to get onto that rust problem though, otherwise the structure may collapse..:avatar::avatar::avatar::avatar:
