Hi Mike. The bridge looks awesome. I really like it on the angle and not parallel to the front of the diorama. I've done the same thing on the large bridge on my layout. By angling the roadbed, you create greater interest, I feel!
My old switching layout had two of the single track bridges,the half a basement version of the GVR has a pair of the two track versions.I will go on record here and state they are two of my most favorite bridges.
A little more progress. The backdrop boards are just in to give me an idea how it will frame the scenicked area. They will be taken back until the landforms and the spackling are done. The other pic is the two track staging yard and fiddle yard.
Catt I haven't decided but I'm leaning towards a tree covered cut. Frank if you are refering to the wires in the outlet beneath the layout the orange one goes to an overhead light fixture and is UL approved and the blue coil one goes to a hand held vac and is not UL approved!
For what it is worth my vote goes to trees. I am always being asked why my layouts never have tunnels.I just explain that there are two tunnels in Michigan and they both go under water and end in another country.
Besides that they are on the other side of the state.
