my dear god that is out standing.

Looks really good, but to me, the canal looks too muddy. Also not sure how good it's game-vice, cos there is only one bridge and whole one side is covered whit water.
The Cygnar towns upstream from the mouth of the canal has no sewer treatment whatsoever. All human and animal waste alike are just washed into the canal, where the slow stream gives it every chance to build up. The reeking canal turns so bad in times that you can actually cross it on foot above the lower locks..
In gaming terms this means the canal above the locks needs both players consent to be considered shallow or deep water. Othervise it's open terrain. Likevise, the edges of the canal below the closed lock needs both players consent to be considered above 1'' and impassable. This part of the canal itself is considered shallow water. The consent must be reached before any dice determining who starts or pick sides are tossed.

That is absolutely stunning! STUNNING! My hat is off to you my good sir.

Looks amazing! My only critique would be the plain wood frame. With all that work, it seems the only part left lacking. I'd prefer it black, with white lettering; as is, it distracts from the rest of the board. Obviously a minor issue - great work!
Pretty nice board, actually reminds me of the old Kings Lynn harbour branch here in Britain.

Wow. That's a lot more elaborate than I thought it was going to be. Very nice job. The lock is an interesting touch that adds a lot of character.
I actually have one of those Pegusus bridges, but my fellow players keep wanting to leave the end pieces off because they complain it obstructs things too much. Personally I feel terrain is supposed to obstruct things, and how you deal with that is part of the game.
This is amazing.

I take it you used "O" gauge rails? I am in the process of acquiring my items to make a similar table. One Item you may want to add to the end of your rail that ends at the waters edge is a car-stop or rail-road bumper. They make them to snap into most of the gauges of trains. Lionel trains from the USA made some with the part number 6-12717. comes in a 3 pack for about $6.00 US or you could make some out of some scale plastic I-Beams. Nice job on the Y-rail also. I am going to do something with the 6' of rail I bought at a hobby store closing down here in Michigan to the same effect thanks to you. ;-)

Looks great! you are right about that stone work....the realism is top notch. A bit expensive to get here in the states with the value of the dollar though.
Looks very very nice! Like the funktioning look of it - seems to be a workin scenery! Want more ... ;-)
Really impressed with this board, I gathered quite a few ideas for a similar project of my own. Those rails are so sweet that I had to grab a few for my coming project. Just hoping it turns out half as well.
