Looking really good.
You seem to be creating a vision of space and open-ness really well.

I am thinking of running a branch line along the back of the high ground, working on a shuttle system.  Just need to confirm that it will fit!

Setting the road bridge into the countryside:

Having finally set the stone road bridge in place and settled it into the landscape with plaster, overpainted in green I have added some scenery, a fence and painted the stream. The scene represents a narrow brook, clogged with weeds that runs under the railway via a culvert. The first picture is a bit blurry:



A close up of the bridge area:


From the other side. The culvert can just be seen behind the bridge:



Here is a closer view of the culvert, consisting of two concrete pipes that run under the track, supported by a concrete abutment. This was scratch built from three bits of card, a couple of mm of plastic tube, cut in half length ways and the surround built up with filler:

That’s lovely.
I particularly like the culvert going under the track.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Love your work.  Well done.

I think the water colour is just right for the sort of stream/brook that you have described.  Water colour is so difficult to get right.

I have continued to work on the countryside, adding more foliage, some trees and fencing:






I have also been working on the area close to the track, adding a small dirt access road and a cable laying party:

I love that last one. Looks like they're stuck in the middle of nowhere, a load of cable to get through, and it's raining.
