    I've seen the pier in what passes for 'real life' with me - at the Sleaford Show - it is truly a special model.
    My best work has been spread over many fields..

    Here are a couple of photos of Bantry signal cabin updated with correct Gaelic script
    As a matter of interest, where did you source the old Gaelic script?

    I searched Google for Gaelic script-there are many variations!I selected the script that by deduction seemed to be correct for Bantry.
    I clicked on and by some fluke it appeared in my Excel spreadsheet(there is probably a technical method to describe this but I am still
    in the dark ages!)I then selected the script from the Font drop down box,formatted the area I wanted and typed in Bantry
    When the scale looked ok I printed it out and stuck it on scratch built name boards.Hope this helps.
    Thanks very much for for the kind comments.

    If you search on Google for this script I believe there is a link to Excel which you can send the file to

    just been on Google.If you search "gaelic script generator bunchlo gc" you will see a heading Gaelic Script for MS windows
    Go in to this and you will have a list of scripts-click on Bunchlo GC and you should be able to import it to Excel-hope this helps

    Update on Bantry

    We have made some progress on Bantry station building.The basic shell has been assembled and some detailing
    taken place.The shell is Daler board covered with Evergreen clapboard (now very expensive!).Windows and doors are from
    Peco (one of the LK Packs)Bricks on the chimney are Slaters and will be painted with Humbrol 121 and detailed with Brick colour
    (Precision Dark Brick) and also one or two slight colour variations.(pictures later)Furniture is scratch built-not brilliant
    but it will do! will update as work progresses.
    Have attached a photo of Bantry station in later years
