Eromarbordo was the Roman port for Murranaccia province but it gradually declined in importance with the passing of the centuries. The railways avoided it and it was only connected to the system in the early twentieth century. It still remains a backwater but the AFK branch has brought some prosperity. The model still needs a lot of work to complete it.
Entry to the town is via the road/rail swing bridge across the creek, seen here at high tide.
The Town Staithe or Urbetakajo is mainly used by the smaller boats which supply fish for the smoke houses, one of which is visible in the background.
Another view of the staithe at a quiet time. The area to the right will be occupied by various buildings. The flex will also be hidden!
The station building is sketched in but still needs work to complete it.
A general view of the quayside with its various industries.
The tide is miraculously out in the quay (to accommodate the spars of the beam trawler) despite being in by the swingbridge.
The Levjatano in all her glory. The ship was built on the table of my bedsit when I was a postgraduate and served as a lure for the AFK to reach the sea for many decades. It was intended to be a full hull model for radio control and needed much modification.
The fish market stands alongside the sea chapel.
There are plenty of boxes to haggle about.
The Carrodantis confectionery company has a factory in Lacono and imports the cocoa that it needs through this warehouse in the port. In this case the AFK has supplied a modern slide wall van to take the load.
The oil tankers bunker the fishing fleet whilst the cocoa sacks are transferred by the forklift truck.
Grain hoppers are pushed into the unloading pit for the silos. The grain will be exported from a quay hidden around the corner from the modelled part.
