CobblesSpotted on Mytchett Green, a rather nice model tramway at Wycrail, were these excellent cobbles.

Only someone who has tried to build inlaid track can truly appreciate how well these have been done. The lovely flowing trackwork is scratchbuilt from PCB sleepers to which has been soldered the rail. Everything has been checkrailed and would need to be even if it wasn't cobbled as the curved are proper tramway tight.

The inlay is Metcalf cardboard cobbles very carefully cut to fit. The thickness of the car brings them up to just below the rail head - ideal when you clean the track with a rubber. I'd never have thought of that but I would now.
