Thanks for the comments my friends. Many moons ago, I felt rather shy when I tackled my first corner of mountain scenery. Now I must say this is a part of the hobby I really love.

Happy new year to you too, Bill!

Some progress this afternoon on the scenery along the waterfall. Now that the bridge bents have been glued to the girder, I was almost ready to install the bridge, but wanted to make the greenery along the waterfall more lush. This was this afternoon job. The first shot shows the bridge in position, then it was removed and green was added on both sides, as well as a number of bottlebrush pines. Comparing with the first shot gives an idea of the addition.

Thank you very much, my friends, for the nice comments.
The bridge was finally installed over the waterfall. Here are two pics showing it on location.





It's even been said that a loco would have crossed it to see if it could stand her weigh (and it could!).

On the left side of the scene was a gap between the existing scenery and the rebuilt benchwork.



It was filled with homasote like phonic insulation material (that you put under your parquet), which was then covered with spackle. It's now drying (slowly since some holes required a fair amount of spackle).



I have also added some small rocks on top of the snowshed but I forgot to shoot this. Later...
