The Claddagh model railway

Hello everyone and Happy new year,

Welcome to my new model railway layout which I thought I would share with you all. I am a newcomer to this website.

I have been working on this model railway layout for the past few months and still quite a lot to do. I made all the buildings and boats as I could not find suitable ones to buy. The layout is currently dc and I planned to have one of the three lines dcc later. Future plans are to include a model of the old railway station and outbuildings in Clifden. The line of buildings on the upper level are modelled from the old houses near Galway docks. Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

Hope you like the layout

Pat

Hi  Paddy .  All the buildings are made from wood. 3mm hardboard and 12mm mdf used for gable ends.

 Thanks for your   comments. Yes a lot going on so  the next section will be   a  countryside     area with few buildings and more scenery.

Cheers
