The other side of the big needle. Note the smaller needles on the near side of the track. I have built these to give the impression that my little tramway is running through some rough terrain, not just on the edge of it.  Larry G

A closer view of my version of the needles eye.  Not to be out done by mother nature, I also included a second, smaller, needles eye.   LG

Some may think it strange to build such a unlikely arrangement as twin tunnels through the needles with a bridge between them.

YES, there is a prototype for just about anything. Take note of the photo below the unfinished bridge. ( no name for the photographer)
Judging by the styling of the bridge railings, I would guess that this scene is located in India or maybe China, most likely a walking bridge. LG

This shot was taken before any coloring was done. The little mine motor gives scale to the tunnel openings. The bridge is 5.5" long.   LG

Fascinating stuff Larry and most imaginative. This is developing into a stand out layout.

Really like the tall peaks.  Not something that is often seen on a indoor layout.  I'm working on a desert canyon scene where the cliffs are about 18" tall. 

Keeps the photos coming!

While looking through the South Dakota Tourism web site I found this shot of a bridge on Iron Mountain Road. Although not a rail bridge, it is very similar to my tramway bridge going straight into a tunnel.   LG
