Back some time ago,I described in http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=2164&forum_id=7 how a built a tunnel mouth & this was the result ( currently, this is now on another YMR members  layout of CraigSR).



Now I have to build a different version as part of the cliff face, etc, leading into Charde.
This time I am using Random Ashlar Stone.

The basic mouth template has 4 suggested openings, as per the top part of the picture below.
Due to the height restriction I have, I have re-shaped the opening as indicated by the bottom part of the picture.




Nothing like having an un-conventional tunnel mouth exclam:

Ah yes, it hadn't occurred to me that it might be cut out of solid rock - that would do it .............:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

It was more the masonry arch that was worrying me :hmm

Yeah, my tunnel mouth out of solid rock but faced with stone to make it match the viaduct - there was plenty of stone left after the viaduct was built. That is my story !!

The portal/tunnel mouth prior to buttresses, etc plus the inside wall that is to be curved to suit & the stone work to be all glued together.

Ron, forgive me for this heresy, but is there a reason why  didn't you use a suitable imitation RSJ and have a flat top-line to the tunnel exit? I expect you did think of it....

[there's one here, http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=17719&p=384625&hilit=cable+retaining with some nice modelling, too. I don't know how 'proto' it is however see http://www.semgonline.com/structures/struct_26.html  ]

Doug, not heresy to point out my failing - I had not even thought of a flat top-line - it would have been simpler to build !

Never mind what the engineers might say Sol - that looks really good. :thumbs

I didn't realise it was so close to the viaduct but being there, it has a proper "reason to be" rather than an excuse to hide some trackwork or simply lift one track over another.  The Scalescenes stonework looks good too. :cheers

I can't remember but do you have access to the hidden tracks ?

Yes, lift off the top station Charde - it is easy with two people; disconnect 4 nuts & a two wire plug & away it goes.

It is looking good Ron,

It is looking so good that I could give you some of my pocketmoney to help my Dad do a similar type thing on his layout. You would get around to it quicker than he could.
