Lil Chris, lil culvert?  :smiley-laughing:

The one I modelled was based on quite an industrial, under valley route for water, hence it's size! Yours looks neat though, I like it. I'll be running a safety rail above mine not a fence, again I'm giving a nod to industry on my layout. :)

It's still not finished, but here's my first pass of ground covering.





I'm not convinced by the dark green, seems a bit too 'lush' for me so I'll soften that down. I also have a few bushes and foliage to add more detail and interest. The culvert needs blending in a bit more and then dried water (muddy, sandy tones) will be added.

Oh and the nearest rail in shot will be quite rusty and patchy, as this is a siding. I've dragged rough ground right up to it's edge and will ballast over the top, but patchy and with some moss etc to emphasise it's not a running line.
