Trevlac Tunnel for my model railway 00 gauge layout.

This is a two minute video of how I made it in one day. It cost around £20 (2013). It is 4ft wide which is my (non-permanent) layout’s width. Then about 2ft deep and 9 inches high. I sprayed it grey and black and was going to cover it in gravel and grass but liked it as it was, so left it. If you use the insulating foam wear gloves and don’t touch it, as it is hard to get off.

UPDATE: I’ve since found an easier way using insulation foam board. Look at my video called ‘Calverton Layout 4 Pt 3’ and scroll to one minute in.

Music is Mondo a go-go by Eat Static.

Internet search ‘Calvertfilm’.

You could put Mount Rushmore in there lol

Corey says:

Building one now for our train. How many cans of spray foam and paint did you use? You show pushing down on the foam, is that to compress the foam?

Five Elms says:

Hi mate. Regarding your recent message that i cant seem to reply to i have come to your channel direct. I get most of my stuff from ebay, ehattons, and warley model railway show in Birmingham. Hope this helps. Jason.

Calvertfilm says:

I've since found a better way using layers of insulation foam. Towards the end of my Calverton Layout 4 Pt 3 video.

Calvertfilm says:

After the cardboard bit was done but before the spraying of the foam. But the spraying can be hard to control. OK only for large pieces like this.

I've since found a better way using insulation board. If you look at my video called: 'Calverton Layout 4 Pt 3' and scroll to one minute in, you'll see the improved method. Hope that helps.
