Got a good start on putting in my new tunnel and bridge, after tearing out the old one that was rotting, due to the leaky waterfall above it. Leveled in the dual track tunnel and got it set.

Then on to setting the landscape blocks in for the dual track bridge.

Hopefully, I'll get in the abutments at the other end tomorrow.

I got the Trex ladder system in. The white pipes are to run cords up to the filter.

Another angle. The abutment is set for the bridge.


The bridge set in, it was not as dominant looking as I feared. The black paint helped. It is made of 1/2' steel, welded by a buddy.


Other end.

I made a step at each end with smaller blocks, had not planned that, but it sure helps. Here's a view from across the layout.


Now, if the weather holds I can relay the track on the outside loop for some winter runs. Will do the inner loop/switches in the
spring, after we do the new waterfall.

Hmm, thought I had replied to this, but don't see it on here. Thanks for your kind comments!

Bridge is 14' long and 14" wide. Have some major track/switch work to do, if the weather improves again, may get back at it. Will have the outside loop going for sure for some winter runs. Ron Senek helped me some, when he was here, on how to tie the inner and outer loops together. Thanks RON!
