Aultbea Update

From time to time, we have dropped in to see progress on a layout being built by Peter Bond, called Aultbea.  As we dropped in to see him yesterday, I have some update photographs.

Most of the progress has been on the buildings including the centre piece which is the train shed and station building.  As you can see, this is a pretty big structure as it consumes two full length coaches.

The view inside the trainshed is particularly impressive; I think you can smell the diesel fumes and sea air!

Although the layout is based on one of the proposed schemes to open up the north west of Scotland (of which there were a number) it is also firmly inspired by Oban as you can probably see, plus chunks of Kyle of Lochalsh including the goods shed and a bit Fort William with the train engine coming beyond the station and idling on the station approach.
