AGWI - Up to date...

I have made some progress with the jetty (supports, handrails and wooden planking still missing). It is simply constructed from plastruct sections and the deck of an N gauge bridge kit I had spare. You will also see the second smaller aerial ropeway tower nearest the AR house. It is a freelance design because I can't get a decent photo from the real thing.

The main problem I'm having at the moment is that the N gauge rail I'm using for the metalwork in the AR house and the pipeline does not want to solder together - my dad even used a small blowtorch without success. Either the rail isn't clean enough or the alloy in the rail is unsolderable...
