“Hi Al, I wondered if this would be of interest to your readers.
You put on line the layout Santa’s little helper at the end of December and as I have taken photo’s of the build in progress I thought your readers might like to see how I constructed the bridge and roadway.
I got quite a few wonderful comments and some readers couldn’t understand how I got so much on a 5’x3′ board, some even thinking it was “N” gauge. It’s “OO” gauge and I think the secret is not to clutter it up with too many buildings.
I hope the pictures are ok for you to use and hope it will give encouragement to some of your readers to have go at something different.
A huge thank you for Laurence for sharing this – it’s wonderful to see all the different ways folk come up with to acheive an effect.

It’s also quite a topical post, because today is the last day you can grab the tunnels and bridges print-out-scenery at the launch price of just $10.
I’ve had a number of emails asking about whether the bridges (and all the print out scenery) is suitable for O scale. Yes, it is, but only if you can print out at A3. So you need a friend who has an A3 printer for O scale, or you can take it to a print shop:
“Just to let you know that my son has blown the pictures you forwarded up by 118% which is virtually A4 to A3 and they look stunning – in fact the quality of the printing of his office printer in A3 is vastly superior to my old Epson printer in A4.” – Andrew.
Here’s what the tunnels / bridges look like if you missed them:
If you’ve been mulling the bridges / tunnels over, you can grab ’em here at the launch price. But today is the last day.
That’s all this time folks. A huge thanks to Laurence.
