The lock keepers cottage is very nice. Would make a nice low relief model, or I should say two, once it has been cut down the middle.

Cheers, Gary.

Excellent. I need these for my layout and it will save me having to scratch build them.

Just a few photos of completed bridge N scale.



This is roughly where the bridge will go.I will have to play around with the canal width as the locks don't line up with the bridge.



The locks with my as yet one narrow boat.



All the locks will have ladders,lock gates,paddles fitted eventually but as this is mind numbingly boring this will be the last thing to do.



My first effort at a towpath,i didn't want it to be all cobbles.



Down to what will be a canal basin with industry.



Looking through the bridge showing the towpath on the left.







This side doesn't matter as it's away from view.



Finally the rear of the bridge which is also out of view.
Will post further photos later.

Nice, tidy little build Alan. I'll definitely be getting one of those for my layout.

It does go together quite nicely Trevor.i don't know what to do regarding the lock keepers cottage,there doesn't seem to be anywhere it can go.The photos do show up the finer details but it looks ok from a distance with my eyesight.

That's going to be an interesting corner Alan. :roll:

The placing of the canal offers scope for a huge range of scenic options.  It could be a countryside canal - cows in fields and people picnicking on the canal side, even a pub with canal side gardens or it could be an industrial canal with warehouses etc. alongside (I'm thinking some of those wonderful west midlands canals here ....:roll::roll:)  John Dew built a lovely industrial canal scene on his "Granby" layout using information from an expert - the sadly now departed Wheeltapper.

Hi Peter,i'm afraid i'm one of those people who is rubbish at planning and the canal is there by virtue of it being the only place available.It  will be an industrial canal as the period i'm modelling,steam to diesel transition,is really a time before pleasure boating took off.I did think about the lock keeper's cottage or a pub but thought it might look a bit crowded.Any other ideas would be a bonus.
