Mother Nature weathering at it's finest,
I don't have that worry yet. 

L:

A fair bit to go yet.

Second river need's to be added in,
on the approach to the canyon from the yard.  :)

Spur will serve a small Manganese Mine operation one day.

Hi Ken  :wave:



You inspire me to have a look at my 'Tri-ang' Girder Bridge hoard !  :shocked:


I was hanging onto them for future 'Transcontinental' HO use ...  L:

... but they could be quite funky for 1:35n2 as well.  :mex:





I have always been quite envious of the 'Tri-ang' Canadian version, in genuine rust-colour ! ...  :cool:

... mine are the British dark grey versions.  :f:



:java: :moose: :dt:



Si.

Si.

Interesting color scheme.


The two I have are both grey in color,

along with the Triang stone arch bridge.


I have more bridge's  :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:  then I can use,
 
short of getting rid of my wood / metal / project side of the basement,

and extending the layout, not likely to happen.

Hi Ken  :wave:  Eh!


Well I'm totally devastated !  :sad:

I have been dreaming  :hyp:  of a rusty Canadian 'Tri-ang' Truss for years !  :time:





Grey ... Eh!  :shocked:

Just goes to show ... Don't believe everything you read !  :us:

The truth IS out there !!  :shades:



" I have more bridge's  :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:  then I can use "


Of course, you would have to step up work  :slow:  on the FRock(TM) production-line as well !  :old dude:


Are you thinking of using the the grey stone arch 'Tri-ang' River Bridge anywhere ?  ???

I admit to having 1 of those in my HOARD as well !  :P



:cool:



Si.

Si.

Just last night, finished up two more slab's of FRock,

need to install backing support's for mounting.


Might try to fit in the Tri-ang River Bridge in,  L:

it may workout in El Diablo Canyon,

but will need to see how the river works out first.


As the canyon is on a 90 degree bend,

placing scenery so it is acceptable to be seen from both ends,

is the challenge at the moment.

:bang:

Plus it all has to be removable, just in case.

West end other then ballasting completed.

Still having trouble blending East end to this portion,
getting closer though, have used (pitched) a lot of styrofoam so far.

Trying to decide on a Tunnel or Rock/Snowshed on the East approach.  L:
I have enough vertical rock formations at this time.
The K&S did have a Rock/Snowshed on the line.

If the Rly had been extended to Silverton as planned,
they may have had to build a tunnel along Denver Canyon at some point.  :)

All the scenery is still removable, 4 sections so far, 1 or 2 yet to go.

When :us: will I be satisfied :2t: with the East approach?
Stay tuned as I work on it.

Still have a pile of styrofoam, furniture foam & plaster wrap to use up or pitch yet!  L:

Hi    Ken  :wave:



Rock/Snowshed ... Eh !  :P


I can't quite imagine the 'East End' ... But a Rock/Snowshed sounds  C :cool: :cool::thumb:


Good to hear your 'FRock'(TM) supply isn't running out  :)  despite pitched styro. !  :f:

Si.

Lots of  :bang:  needs to be done, to shape the contours,

for the Rock Shed to fit within reason.  L:


Do I build the shed then add the mountain ?

Or fit the shed to the mountain ?  ???


Only a bit of  :bang:  :bang:  will tell.

Hi    Ken  :wave:



The view through the rock cut is looking good, with the trees in the background.  :thumb:





On the shed building ... Perhaps a bit of both.  L:

You could start a real 1:48 ROCK SLIDE !  :shocked:  & see where it should go.  ;)
