Looking good, Marty. I think viaducts and large bridges nearly always look great on models. Apart from the bridge itself, the extra views it allows provides for additional interest on the layout. I am sure you (and your nephew?) are going to have great fun detailing that gorge. Those last couple of shots already begin to set the scene. Hard to remember that it is all in N Gauge!

Good tip about the Ashlar stone.
Might not have thought about that initially.

Looks good through the arch.

Thanks Geoff, Peter and Chris.

I deliberately set out to create a model railway in a landscape and while a flat layout would have been easier to build!!! I'm certainly enjoying myself.

Now, just got to find some more to model... sigh.

Found some more time to model.... not much, but progress on the Altycefan Bridge is being made.

Scalescenes light grey Ashlar brick paper glued onto 6mm MDF frame with Elmers glue, the walls are taking shape.



The brickwork around the weight saving holes was a bit tricky, trying to maintain an even circle took a bit of trial and error. You can see one lot in place on the left hand hole and the second set of bricks suitably "sliced" and ready to go around the right hand hole.



In the end the trick seemed to be to stick down every second brick, positioning it around the hole with two craft knife blades. Once in place the intermediate bricks could then be glued and stuck down.



Not too bad on this side in the end but the other side, where I started, will need to be reworked :oops:, Buttresses are balsa wrapped in brickpaper and glued to the bridge.



Still a ways to go but a little weathering around the main arch in this view shows the potential and with vegetation on and around it should do the job nicely.







Not quite so busy this week so there might be another hour or two to be found to go working on the railway.

That's a tough job in "N" Marty - particularly the circles - and I think you've done exceptionally well.   Close-up photos tend to draw attention to every detail whereas once in position - and, as you say, with vegetation - everything melds in nicely.

Ken

It blows my mind that you are doing all this in N gauge Marty. That sure looks good! You make me think I should have gone with N instead of HO.

Not to steal your thread Marty, but Saturday I went to a train show and saw the largest N gauge layout I have ever seen. It was an end to end layout with four tracks and many sidings. The length of this monster was close to 200 feet. I would guess that there had to be almost 1000 feet of track on it. Very Impressive it was!

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. Yes it was a clubs layout. Unfortunately that club is about an hours drive from home, so I doubt I would join in. Still, I was impressed with what they have accomplished.

Wayne

PS: It must be a large club, as they had a HO Layout (slightly smaller) at the show also.

I can't wait to see another photo of this when the scenics are done and a 14xx and autocoach are appearing under the top arch :cool wink

What an impressive structure you've created there Marty. The holes help to make it even more interesting. :thumbs

Those of us who take lots of photos close up, realise that things don't always look as good in the picture than they do in reality because photos show up all the flaws. With this being in N and the photos probably about twice full size then it must look truly awesome on the layout.

Superb work Marty, and totally agree with you Nick. (But if the deficiencies shown in close up don't show when seen at a normal viewing distance do we need concern ourselves with them?)

No we don't John unless they irritate the builder but sometimes they need explanation for the viewer of the photo :???: if that makes sense :lol:

That bridge is a little masterpiece Marty.  It looks incredibly strong - I mean the design not just the model - typical Welsh over-engineering or maybe they just had some spare stone.

The corner will be "pure Wales" once the river and vegetation is all in place.  :thumbs:thumbs

I'm sure it's in there somewhere but I notice all your landform is polystyrene.  you have a magic "gloop" if I recall for surfacing but do you find it dries OK over the polystyrene ?  I've had problems with "Mod-Rock" type plaster bandage no drying out properly.

Hi Peter....

You have probably been putting the Mod-Roc on upside down................
