Sheil Bridge

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Sheil Bridge  
Phoenix MRC OO gauge 4mm scale

Shell Bridge is now the terminus of the Fort Augustus branch that closed in 1947 but the small branch to Sheil Bridge survived. This is due to increased freight levels of timber and paper traffic and the maintained flow of traffic to the near by Royal Navy base in the next glen along a short freight only line. Passenger traffic is just viable loading to three coaches during the summer with services starting from Spean Bridge.

The layout is based on the late 1980s to the early 1990s and also operates in the modern period.
