    It took a while but I finally finished my pedestrian bridge. It's a Model Power copy of a Heljan kit. I have yet to work it completely into the scenery. Here's some photos of it in the place it'll occupy.

    Hey -- You can't install that! I don't think that overpass is ADA-compatible.

    It is a little bit. It's not set firmly in place yet. I wanted to see how it looked first.

    I know what you mean. I would have a colossal problem with those steps. I have some trouble getting up the steps to my door!

    Super Job!

    Great job - and what would be really funny would be to have a skate boarder sliding down the rails on their board.

    I really enjoy seeing your work. Thanks for sharing.

    Can't get straighter than that! I like the overpass but talk about your stairmaster workout!

    Looks like it would be a great way to take the pounds off doesn't it? It'll make those railfans earn those photos they'll be taking from up there.
