A group of us are currently building a 16mm scale model of Stony Shaw on the Bredgar & Wormshill Light Railway in Kent (UK). So far we have completed the baseboards and have just started on the track work, and this is a test piece we have put together to try out various techniques for ballasting and weathering.Our plan is to be a bit different especially as this is an exhibition layout.
We have a WEB site that give the progress so far

WOW.
I had no idea what 16MM translated to a ratio scale, so I look it up (it's about 1:19 scale). Even in such a large scale, that's very impressive track work!

Very nice!. In such a large scale, bruised fingers come with link and pin couplers, right?.

Part of the plan is to have remotely controlled couplers, but yes not good getting to close to the couplings.
