It looks really good, a novel way of getting tramway looking track without sleepers.
Love all the buildings and Ďjunkí around

I like this picture. You can't see where the join is between model and reality.
In fact it doesn't look model-like at all.

It's looking so good Mike!

Can't wait to see it in the flesh on the 4th June.

BTW Caroline shan't be joining us at your open weekend as she has, fortunately/unfortunately depending on which way you look at it, won a 4 month contract back in the UK.

Decided to change the Armee de l'air en manoeuvres, to a proper camp with a siding.
This is the start:

Nice, Mikey - that 'gate house, is that a loco cab? Seems a kind of familiar shape...

Here they are in (temporary) situ

It's working really well Clive. Although we havent had continuous rain, what we have had hasn't moved it or anything. The driveway to the chateau has been made by pressing cat litter into wet mortar

The green autocar that was only a static model has now been motorised and reliveried to add a bit of colour to the line. the trailer was made from a Ferrero-Roche chocolate box.

Made another covered goods wagon today (using a really easy,cheap method, of which i will post on another thread)
This is the longest goods train I've been able to run on Demiel, mainly because of the tight, tramway bends!

Demiel must have been the only place in France where the shops were open this afternoon!
