Finally my long term project is coming to a close. There are only some small details missing and here and there some weathering and ... 

... of course the wire ropes. What would a wire rope transmission  be without them!

After some unsuccessful attempts, here my interpretation of the wooden planks on the gangway.

I completed the gangway that leads half around the abutement. To me it became a nearly endless bothery and in the end it is very fragile because of the tiny soldering joints. I will be happy when it is fixed in place - what you can see, is only a provisional installation.
I want to take this opportunity to introduce the two guests on the gangway I received this morning. Modelu3d.co.uk printed them for me  in exact 1/50 scale.
They are some of the best figures available and it's an innovative company who offers an excellent service. I will have to modify them a little bit, but they fit perfectly in this period (1870-1890).
