Herewith a picture of both trestles.

Maybe you can understand this a little better.

Don Thanks so much.

A number of years ago I took my family via VIA from Vancouver to Calgary,
and was amazed how we could be sitting in an observation car
(with drinks clinking in our glasses, of course)
on our way into the Kicking Horse Pass tunnels,
that anyone could ever imagine that it was possible to get to this remote and beautiful place, let alone build a railway there.

It must have been pioneers like yours that realized that to build not just one,
but TWO trestles 100 feet above the creek only to advance the rails a couple hundred yards,
that paved the way for such fabulous engineering triumphs.

I only hope that the poor mason setting that first course of abutment stones on the right hand trestle was your only loss.
What brave souls also to venture the first consist across.

Keep us all posted on your adventures as you did with that tentative first crossing.

I'm inspired to go out and start making some latex molds and get my library 'cliffed-up'.

Thanks for the long shot and the push you have provided to get us all going.

Duncan

Looks like the time you have spent with your modeling mates sharing ideas, techniques and sipping......tea?
Has paid off in spades!

Wonderful work my friend!

G'day Dave

Thanks for the compliment 

I have been a little slow of late.  My turntable has finally turned up. It has been on backorder for close on 30 months. I shall be able to go to work on the rail yards.

Photo to follow.

Don

The latest additions to the roster are from left to right

K 36   K 28  K 27  K27

These locos are big compared to the Bachmann range, and being brass they have their problems getting them to run on Peco turnouts and track with out shorting.

The issue is solved with the removal of some metal in the frame. Just a little at a time with a file.

They are DCC with sound (I like sound) And that leads to setting them up with De-Coder Pro. This is a great freeby computer program.  It will allow each to have individual sound effects so things are not all the same.
