Tim,

Thanks for the additional photos of the dirt road, it's another fantastic scene on your layout.

This scene with the dirt road and the train passing the lights, plus the poles, plus the magnificent sky in the distance, is really wonderful, Tim.

Great scene and the roadway is topnotch. Where might I ask did you get the telephone poles from?

Thanks guys for the nice comments and now that colder weather is approaching, there just might be some progress.

Lynn, The telephones are by Rix products. I buy the ones that you have to paint the insulators, not the clear ones. I like them because they look prototypical to my RR and you can make them into all kinds of configurations easily.

Thanks Tim I'lllook them up for the poles. I know what you mean about whether turning cold pushing\pulling us into the RR room.

At last some progress on some scenery is being made.

The bridge is modeled after the prototype as it resides west of Green River Wyoming. I show prototype photos later, if it comes out okay.

The cardboard strips are a pretty fast way of making the land forms in an open grid.



This bridge was used as a vehicle bridge as well, that is why the styrene is inserted between the tracks.


The bridges are made from the Atlas bridge kit, the bents, bridge suports, piping, and angle bracing are scratch built. The weathering follows the prototype.

Better photos to come when I get the tripod back.

The bridge is nice, Tim. I agree with you about the use of cardboard strips to create the landform. It is by far my favorite method.

The bridge and bents look great but the concrete an d rust is right on the money. The genesis of a another wonderful scene.

Here is another project that is being worked on at the same time. It is starting to come together and I will post better photos later. It is a doubled up Lime company from Sheepscot models.

The base is baltic birch plywood and the whole diorama will mount directly into the layout.



So its official modeling season is back in session. Of course once all the leaves, bushes and yad work is done for the winter.
