If we're saying things again, then I'll (re)say that I usually find 'modern urban' layouts a little disappointing. They often look a little sparse and artificial.

 

This proves that that does not need to be the case.

Having been quite for a while and slightly tired, I had given up working on some building on Barrow Street. Now with the new year I have restarted working on Rostrevor Court, hopefully the last of the main buildings required for Barrow Street and then on to detailing  of all the buildings and completion of the overhead catenary.

Regards

Another update on two buildings of rostrevor court for barrow street which have been a pain to do. Main buildings complete now for paths and exterior landscaping to do.

Modern image modelling at its very best. Probably said it before, but ugly buildings somehow look really good when done as well as this.

Warb,

Great OLE work - in Brass it ought to be fairly bomb/ hooman proof. It will make track cleaning a bit of a pain but I expect you have a plan.  The light weight cross spans are amazingly fine- you must be pleased with them. 

Thanks for up date and more power to your elbow!

Ah, his elbow should be safe enough.

 

1,500 volts divided by 76 is just under 20 volts...

@warb I built 20ft of double track cantenary for a chap, a post about every foot or so, we installed phosphorous bronze overhead wires!! not one has survived- track cleaning, re-tracking derailed stock and people not noticing the wires was the cause. The layout just has the posts now.....

From that experience we have decided to do just posts on the Greystones layout, it's a pity but will cause less fustration

I've done the same on Arigna/Belmullet, but with the signal wire posts. Unless you look really closely, you see the posts and don't missed the wires.
