I wish I had something called ACME on my layout as it hearkens back to cartoons when I was a kid. ACME explosives for Wile E Coyote in Roadrunner or something to do with Donald Duck? I do like the look of the kerosene tankers. Did you make up the decals for them? 

And I'm a fan of bridges of any type on a layout. Your viaduct is looking very good. Once embedded in the scenery it will be even better. I can only suggest that you don't plant its legs until you've got the scenery just behind it pretty well completed.

Cheers Webbo,

Yes, I was having the same thoughts about coyote when I was doing them :)  They are transfers I got from Robbies Rolling Stock

You are way ahead of me on the viaduct :)  I am having to plan very carefully how I proceed, as you point out.. once the viaduct is "planted" I won't be able to get in behind it

The first two completed wagons (some finishing details on the underframes & the insides to paint aside) of what I hope will become a good size Caley Rly freight wagon collection

Looking for something completely different, I came across this article which features some good size Caley Rly freight wagons!

Brilliant, thanks Mike, that opens up all sorts of possibilities... though will mean a few more expensive sheets of transfers just to use "C" & "R"  :)

I scrolled up to the page above and the caption under the Forth Rail Bridge made me smile.... looks far more like South Queensferry than Leith to me!

Looking excellent. That viaduct is going to be something special I think.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks Martin & Brian, I envisage this being one of the "viewpoints" of the layout, so want to make it look good... but so often in my modelling, getting what I want it to look like out of my head and onto the layout are 2 different things entirely!

I bit the bullet and planted the pillars, next step was to get the gorge floor completed, so more fun with modrock



Here is how it looks combined (only the pillars are fixed at this stage)

That's looking really nice.  :thumbsup:

I shall watch with interest how you do your river . I have a smaller couple of bridges that span the fictitious River Edding on my layout that needs finishing.

Thanks Dave,  I am basing it (very) loosely on the premise that it is damed upstream, so there will be a wider dry riverbed and a relatively low flow, but does see higher flows during periods of high rainfall or snow melt... that is the plan anyway...

Hi,

Glad to know you have some honourable, knighted ladies upstream  :D.

Seriously, all looks great and very much looking forward to the 'how you did it' posts. Not just the river but the backdrop.

I've seen a few layouts with viaducts on here and like them immensely. Have bought two for a future planned layout so will be taking notes.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers weave  :beers:

That is progressing very well, Andrew. I hope the upstream dam incorporates a salmon ladder. It looks like an idyllic spot for some salmon fishing! 8-)

All coming along very nicely, the viaduct reminds me of the one on the Bo'Ness and Kinneil Railway strangely enough. Looking forward to seeing it all one all the grass and other scenic materials are added. Hope the van is standing up well to the winter weather!
Cheers

Depending on bankside vegetation the Spey Cast may have to be incorporated !
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I have the same problem too transferring what's in my mind into reality.
