That looks great! Lots of character in that little bridge.

Can't tell if there's any spit, but the rest of it looks held together with bailing wire. I like it.

kim,

looks great to me. I like the makeshift look of the bondaged bridge. What kind of wood did you use for bridge and sleepers?

Hi, I'm Kim.

Thanks, everybody
.Volker I am using a few varieties.
Love basswood for the structural bits but for a while, I have been using craft plywood by A.J.Leeman 0.6 mm thick but you can get thicker. Love this stuff cheap in big sheets and can be laminated to get the warped effect just play around with it lends itself also to washers and a very even distribution of colour . For a while now my favourite material I just dream up ways of using it, sometimes I leave it in water overnight. easily obtained especially in Europe.
cheers

Nice work so far.  As soon as you finish, Health and Safety is going to post signs forbidding anyone from using it.

Hi all.
Well, that was Christmas hope you all had a reasonable day hoping the new year will be better.
Last time I mentioned that I did not like the signal I and I wanted to build a new one. A Banner signal mounted on the bridge is its replacement much better more in line with narrow gauge simple stop-go function.
cheers.

That will be a very charismatic focal point of the diorama. Adequate. -- Russ
