I have decided to have three Viaducts on my layout although one will be a sort of Aquaduct but with the canal running full length underneath as opposed to on top. The other two will be standard Viaducts, one of which will be part of the now redundant incline area.

Below are some pictures of how I constructed them, these pictures are of the Aquaduct (I use that term loosely). I constructed it out of plywood, planned timber and used the scalescenes viaduct papers and arches. All comments welcome although I am reasonably pleased with the outcome.

I will post some pictures in the next few days of one of them fitted on the layout.

Thanks Alan. Because I made the mistake of building my top tier too high I had to scratch build the viaducts as all the kit ones available were not high enough. Worked out in the end though and another valuable learning experience.

they look great, scratch builds are better than kits,more robust

The first of the viaducts going in.....











Levelled and in place, this is when you find out your baseboard is not as level as you first thought






 

Blocks in place to hold the parapet walls whilst they glue, I decided to build the walls in sections as opposed to one full length. Easier to replace should I have any mishaps.






This picture shows where the now raised incline joins the viaduct, a much better use of space in my opinion although do lose the option of the two levels being linked...











The finished article, other than ballasting and weathering. All the cable drops are hidden in in the piers as is the wiring for the point motor..

I am inviting opinions on what to do scenic wise under the arches, I saw a thread on here in the scalescenes topic area showing the scalescenes viaduct build and that was finished with a kind of marsh area underneath which looked very good so was considering something similar but open to any suggestions...

Hi Shaun,

Impressive scratch build. I can see why you're pleased with all those arches. Not knowing the environment which your railway will be set in makes it difficult to choose something suitable underneath. The marshy ground setting is a good idea and will be a good exercise in scenic modelling. In more urban areas, it was not unusual to exploit the existing built environment for further benefit and numerous lock up businesses made use of railway arches by putting in brick and or timber fronts and gates for their trade. Garages and workshops were popular and some Googling will doubtless produce numerous examples. I recall many such enterprises around Waterloo Station for instance, including a specialist Citroen business for those old Maigret cars.

Continue having fun and I'm looking forward to your ongoing adventure,

Bill

Those viaducts are very very impressive Shaun. Being something of a scalescene addict I can appreciate how much work wnt into them......proper job:thumbs


I agree with Bill regarding the scenic side. I would determine what that whole stretch of baseboard will represent......Town or Country......the scenicking choices for the arches will then become clearer

Should it be Town I believe Scalescenes do Arch infills for lock up garages etc

Best Wishes


John

I bought the actual arches themselves which come with the infills.They are very good although mine are N scale.

Thanks for the suggestions....

I was leaning towards making that area scenic but having read your comments I can certainly see the benefits of using the arches as workshops as I could easily link it to where my town area would be.

I might do half and half and use the arches to the left that back onto the wall as workshops and the ones on the right that visually run right through as a sort of fenced off marsh area.

John, I too am a scalescenes nut and have built quite a few of Johns kits (even before I started on the layout). I know try to kit bash them even if it is only a little just so they look slightly different. I have some ready to add to the layout, I will post some pics when I manage to start fitting them.

I would have to kit bash the scalescenes in fill arches as my viaduct archers are taller than the kits. Not sure how feasible this would be but I will purchase them and take a look.

Second of the three going in. Not bore you with too many pictures as very similar to the first although this one has a back to it. I intend to make the areas underneath look overgrown with shrubbery etc.
I have been working on kit bashing the scalescenes high street backs, had to lose a lot of the height etc to make them fit I am going to sit these behind the wall on top of the viaduct. More on that later.






The card inside the arches has slightly bowed at the bottom, I thought I could get away without bracing the bottom with timber, obviously not. I will correct when I start doing the scenery.

Found myself in front of the TV watching Euros last couple of weeks so thought I could at least do something whilst watching. Been finishing off the scalescenes high street backs, these will be fitted between the roof trusses above my second viaduct.
I have had to chop and change to make them fit also bashed them a bit so they all look a little different. I have had to lose the third floor from the kit as well as shortening the overall width. Also used a few of the different brick papers, not sure about the London brick but do like my combination of aged red brick and pebbledash.
 






Below a couple with the chimney pots fitted, probably the most difficult bit. I drilled down through the top of the chimneys and pushed in painted cocktail sticks.

Nicely done, you have created a good variety of buildings there.

Managed to spend a few hours on the layout yesterday so started to fit out the area that will be my Station, Fitted the retaining wall and did some work around the bridge that will be the entrance to the station.
Scratch built everything but used the scalescenes random Ashlar brick papers. I know the bridge would not stand up to engineering scrutiny but hey I like it.
Wanted to use the random ashlar as opposed to the standard ashlar I have used on the viaducts just to break the view up a little bit. I am thinking about using the scalescenes large station building but not 100% decided yet. I read John Dew's thread on building the station (wonderful build) which has made me lean towards the scalescenes station.

Very good modelling, I'd be tempted to panel over the roof beams, at least to above the railway and paint it light blue or white. It would take your eyes away from the beams and Give you more reflected light (I think)

Yes..I do need to do something with the trusses, I have one or two things in mind but painting them would certainly be an easy option.

A quick and simple way of covering the trusses is to staple up some light coloured wallpaper
