Seventh heaven

At 7 in my countdown...it's Corris by Peter Kazer. Another odd scale - 1/4" (6.35mm) Scale at 9/16" (14.29mm) Gauge. Just plain weird.

It is however a meticiously accurate model of the Corris railway in the late 1800s. In fact it is a main part of the book by the same modeller Narrow Gauge Railway Modelling' by Wild Swan publications. If you haven;t got a copy, then get one quick before it goes out of print - http://www.strathwood.com/shop_item_view.aspx?itemid=1516 (random link found on google)
The layout is also featured in the Model Railway Journal No.66, 1993 and in the Railway Modeller - May 1999.

Everything (with the exception of the figures) is scratch built. Very nice indeed.
