    Tremendous layout of Burtonport, Donegal and a really detailed article in Jan 2017 Railway Modeller. Fabulous stuff. Lots of good detail, history, intriguing buildings and how it was built. Good stuff check it out.

    Just got my copy and very interesting too. Burtonport has long been a favourite and managed to visit a couple of years ago. An amazingly bleak area & only government subsidies got the line built. But what a railway! Hubert Casserley's photos inspirational & I could just about fit the same track plan as in RM in my workshop...
    Not going to happen though. However, something derivative one day maybe. Temptation has always been to do it to 1:48 on EM track, to take advantage of 4mm scale extended axles for the outside framed locos.
    Also further info on the vast Carlisle Citadel project. Many of the buildings produced to commission in Ukraine of all places.
    Whither atrophy?
