Thanks. What did you use to do that?
Paint Shop Pro has (so has PS etc) a Perspective Correction tool. Basically a box with 'handles' on the four corners. You drag the four corners to align to the structure in the building aligning so they match the perspective and click the 'go' link. The distored box then is squared up and your pic is corrected.

Ray, I posted a demonstration here   http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=2567.0   of what Ed did with his Paint Shop Pro to correct your photo's perspective, Only I used GIMP, which is the program I happen to have. Hope this further shows how easy it is. Try it, you'll like it Smiley

Thanks. I have PS Elements, I'll have to take a look and see if it has a tool like that.

Ray. It may look very different. Here is how it looks on Paint Shop pro. See the crooked box with the handles on each corner? You simply drag the corners until the box follows the perspective in the photo. You then click the check mark which applys the correction. You may have something similar.

Here are a couple new pics. In this first shot, a train is seen from below as it crosses the big trestle over Serenity Canyon:



 

Here's a shot from late in the day as a freight train crosses a stone arch bridge at the west end of the line. Above it is the Princess Shilo Mine. The Cliffside Mine can be seen in the distance at the top:





Enjoy!

Here are a couple photos of a bridge I just finished. It's for a 15" gauge mine tram, that will run from the mines above Mineral Ridge, across to the mill. I gave it a planked deck because I figure they wouldn't want to risk spilling rocks onto the building, pedestrians or vehicles below. This is also the reason for the corrugated metal along the sides (plus it hides some less-than-prototypical construction elements):

 



 



 

I still need to extend the concrete base of the bent, and also fill in a couple small voids in the concrete. The bent, and most of the bridge, is made from strips of styrene textured and painted to look like wood. The deck is 6mm Sintra.

Ray; I'm a relative new-comer. How long have you been working on this "layout" (or is it a city)? Allan

Hi Allan! This is on my In-ko-pah Railroad layout, a 1/24th scale, outdoor model railroad. All the structures are scratchbuilt.

Virtually no indication we are looking at models. Satisfactory. -- Russ
