Thanks Andrew, and to you too. Went for a spin over Sheriffmuir to Blackford the other day and saw your backdrop again for real!

My first serious attempts at weathering in a long while





The inspectors are going to be busy on this installation




I am really new at model railways and i came across your thread about the wagon and looked at the photos in your gallery....WOW what an amazing skilled person you are, i really love the small details of the refinery, the man going down the manhole is brilliant.

I have a lot to learn about our hobby and i am glad to have joined such a very talented and knowledgeable forum.   :thankyousign:

After a busy New Year (I didn't get home from work until midday on the 30th December) and after some annoying delays in Paris then it was straight into parties & celebrations!  It was a difficult time at work as well, so took me quite a while to build up some momentum on the layout progress.

To continue with the track expansion, I knew I had to "plant" the viaduct across the gorge - however once planted, would be difficult to work on the scenery behind it... so I had to do a bit of planning (for once!).  First step was to get the viaduct ready - here it is in its raw form



As I was deviating from the kit instructions, I had to cover over the inside walls - I used some Peco walling sheets



The underside was a bit uninspiring too



I wanted to represent a brick arch, as this has been a strong bridge that has withstood many bad floods and winter snow melts, unlike the other bridges crossing this gorge (more on that later).  I had some Metcalf stone walling paper, so tried that on the underside of the arches

You certainly went to more trouble than I did with the underside of the arches.

My viaducts are just black card on the underside..... theory being the eye won't really be aware of the undersides, and I'll line them with stonework later......

Of course, 20 years later, still black card, aren't they.  :-[

What a lovely arch. Great work.
Like Bealman, my viaduct has only card inserts on the underside. Yours is a great job.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
