Leo’s been kind enough to send us some more pics on his stunning layout. If you missed the last post, it’s here.
“Over head pictures:
Barges, made from 1x4x6″ pine wood, angled, sanded and painted. On top I found whatever to enhance to make it look like a drilling barge, coal barge, auto transport or hauling pipe barge. Very simple to make and takes no more than maybe 10 minutes.
Bridge made from venetian blind slat. I judge the scenery I model via looking through a paper towel role, it gives a limited eye view vs an overall view:

“I had a good day with real steam yesterday up on the NYMR and there Steam Gala… some great shots that maybe some would enjoy.. and maybe be able to co ordinate similar on there model railways
All the best
