A few more rocks

Trestle #1 has been added and tested, as you can see it's a long way down to the river bed ( 27 inches ) So do not want trains going for a high dive. I have yet to add check rails. Now working on Trestle #2 as you can see in the second photo.

There has been a lot of plaster mixed.  Casting and pouring is job #1 ( One operator ) then placing the castings and hiding the joins. Used paper towels saturated in a plaster slurry to fill in any gaps ( Operator #2 )

I have used Spackfilla in the past but the cost would be to expense in this case. So far about 200 kgs of plaster used.
