Not sure what I'm looking at here. confused It looks like it might be some bit of bricolage.

Is that one of those Terracotta bricks (that my house is built from) being carved and chopped about a bit, or is there moor?

Tunnels - I avoid them on my railway, they tend to get full of leaves and the trains get stuck!

Les Tunnels - ils ont tendance à être pleine de feuilles et les trains se coincer !

I think it's using a section of "baked clay" bricks (terre cuite) which are a popular building material here in SW France. They are thermally very efficient compared to "parpangs" cement blocks but very brittle and break easily.

I didn't know that a channel sections were available, sufficiently large to accommodate a G scale train when inverted.

I presume Van did the planning for Daniel's tunnel above:lol:
