Martin’s new tunnel build

“Hi Al, Remember me? the step by step tunnel you posted years ago?

Not been making any scenic models for quite a while but I have recently been asked to make an N scale corner mountain with waterfall. Which has a branch line running behind and a double track tunnel to a fiddle yard.

As I said a while since I made any so it was a challenge to me.

Still not finished yet as the waterfall hasn’t yet been added or the back wall of the cutting to do. Anyway I thought you may like to see some pictures of the step by step progress? I am proud of the top where I have tried to copy natures grass colours.










How could we forget Martin? He’s the one who gave us this stunning tunnel ‘how to’. I can’t wait to see how this one progresses too.

Thank you for getting back in touch, Martin.

And if Martin has made you feel like you want to get going on your layout, I know this will help.



PS Don’t forget the ebay cheat sheet. Still updated daily and going strong.

    Well done Martin. At this moment I am building another hill scene with another tunnel on the left side of my layout. I have completed one on the right hand side using shop bought portals of cut stone, this time building timber ones for the new tunnel.

    Great work on the grass and moss, nice blend with the “rock”.
