Down to a Fyne art
Inspiration for 'Invercalley' came to David Harrison on a visit to Inveraray, the beautiful little town on the shore of Loch Fyne. The handsome white buildings stand some way away from the water’s edge – it almost looks as though there is enough room there for a small branch line terminus... just like one in Ian Futers’ Scottish Layout Projects book.
“I adapted the layout slightly to include a run-round loop and sidings, and changed the name so that, even though it was based on Inveraray, I wouldn’t be tied down to the specific location. The plan was to make a layout that wouldn’t need three people to load into a van. The scenic section is 15ft by 2ft, with the fiddleyard branching off at 90º on the right-hand side to make an L-shape. This is about 4ft long, making the whole layout 6ft long on that side.”
