In parallel of the 'Woolacombe Bay' (at 1/13.7 scale)

I'm doing with 2 friends of my club, a Gn15 layout.


I convert 2 members of my club to Gn15

(Gn15 is 15" gauge rail at 1/24 scale on 16.5 mm rail)


This is the true site in narrow gauge located in the south of France.





The name is "Moules de chez S├ębastien " or 'Sebastien's Mussels', for the MOMING 2013 challenge in sedan (France).

We share the job : Erwan and Jean-paul build the layout and I work on the rolling stocks and the weathering.

Erwan found the mussel business in the French Mediterranean in the "pond of Thau" in reality it's a big salt lake.

This is our interpretation.















We have made some progress.

We need to install now the backdrop and made the sea with resin.

Franck

I love it!! 


In particular, even though it has nothing to do with the excellent modeling,
I like the "company logo" the "happy mussel" above the door!

I do hope that the company has some sort of insurance,
as it would appear that the worker running the loco has suffered a serious injury.

Perhaps a shark jumped up from the water and had his head for a snack? 

:P :P :P :P

More pictures, please, as you and your friends progress!

Herb

I love the scale.

I've modeled Gn15 for years.

Very impressed with the detail work.  :thumb:

I like that picture of the clam with eyes on the side of the building.

Sort of reminded me of a cartoon my kids watch called Sponge Bob.

The layout measures 80 cm by 30 cm (it's a micro layout).

The overall view.





The rolling stocks from Pepper7 fit with Kadee couplers

(efficient but not designed and not very elegant to this kind of wagons)




















The crane from Erwan.





The logo designs by Erwan.

What are the vertical track sections for in the shot with the clam logo?
