CODGERS PASS SCENIC WORK


Our concentration is at present on bringing the scenic work on CODGERS PASS our American 'HO' layout up to a presentable standard for its display at Model Rail Scotland in the Glasgow Scottish Exhibition Centre 22,23,24 February, 2019.
On the left is the first of some new cactii bushes which are being planted on the more level ground (not that there is much of that) of the layout. The picture shows two pairs of tracks of the three pairs which run along the front of the display. As can be seen they are at different levels . In fact there is virtually no level track on the whole layout. The trains climb to the summit at the impressive steel bridge above the magnificent trestle bridge. Both bridge and trestle cross over the Codgers Pass from which the layout takes its name. The repainted rocks in the background are not  to our liking and a program of re-colouriing is taking place.

The CODGERS PASS TRESTLE

Although this looks a rather fragile structure it is eminently capable of carrying the weight of our trains as the rattle across the pass in a seeming constant stream

If you can not wait until the exhibition in February why not contact us and arrange a visit to one of our club nights in the east end of Glasgow, Scotland. We meet on Tuesdays and Fridays.
