    And here'e the complete finished Bridge.. It's 4' Diameter & 8' End to end :) :D I started it on Dec 23rd 2003 & finished today 4-10-04

    I'd again like to thank those that helped me :) :) spitfire, absnut, shamus, jim, kettlestack, alex, 88 fan, Mac, brakie & jon monon, both in spirits & the ideas you gave me :D :D :D :D

    This was the first "long term" major construction I ever tried designing & building alone. :) and... No... If it weren't for The-Gauge, I would have never tried it or I would have given up 1/2 way through.

    Project status: Foamrail module is constructed. Track is laid, Electrical stuff is done. Scenery has just started: a little bit of grass is planted and some work toward a small rocky hill completed.

    This week I'll keep planting grass and maybe work on the backdrop / view dividers a bit.

    Nice work guys. I got a roof on and installed some interior machinery and made a mixing tank and elevator for the roof. Going to add some details next like pipes and a mixer motor. Happy Easter all. FRED

    Well I finaly made some progress. I added glazing and shades to the windows of the cupola and dormers and built them. I attached the cupola and the dormers to the roof. I also attached the vent to the roof and painted its roof. I painted the chimney and the chimney top and attached them to the roof. I also weathered the cupola, dormers, vent, and roof. I still need to weather the chimney and give the whole station some more weathering.

    So here are the progress photos.

    Now is the time to also start the diorama base.

    1 Goal Completed: Shamus Forest

    I am considering the scenery "done". As layouts og, they are never really done, but you reach a point where you can call it that. It's close enough to what I want. Of course, I could always add a little here or there, but I consider it a completed project:

    The scenery looks great jon, only I don't think that upper bridge will pass a DOT inspection:D :D :D . The rest looks simply marvelous. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: and a check plus. FRED
