Oh Mike, it's so peaceful there I think I'll come buy for a camping trip and fish in that beautiful clear water.

I can remember many a summer day as a kid fishing off a bridge on the FEC very similar to this one. "Trains coming, gotta'go."

Thanks Lynn! I prefer Liquid-Tex but nobody around here sells it anymore. Modge-podge is better than nothing although I haven't had problems with bubbles, it just won't smooth out as much as I would like. I got bad news on Future floor wax. It was sold by Johnson to Pledge and they discontinued it !!! Nothing made water look wetter than Future! Frank dress warmly if you come here to camp and fish. Yesterday it was blowing snow and was 26 degrees in the morning. Sun. the high was 37 .

Mike,

I like how your water turned out. Much better color.

Maybe because it's Halloween today, but your river in the second photo looks a little spooky.

Mike have you tried thinning the podge with water to smooth it out? May take a few more coats but I bet it would smooth it out.
I know you missed it , where did you get the abutments?

Thanks Mike, must be the Halloween thing. Sorry Lynn, my bad. They are Chooch castings part# 214-9840 in the current Walthers catalog on page 847. $11.99 for a package of two.

Good looking scene, Mike. How'd you do the fence?

Thanks for the kind words folks! George I can't take credit for the fence. It's a etched stainless steel product made by Gold Metal Models, all I did was spray it with dull-cote. They only make it in N scale however.
