Hello Dave


GOOD JOB on the straightening of lower rails on my larger copy version of the E.99St Yards photo --- even tho I can see where you took the straight sections of rail and wood guard timber at left side of photo, (BEFORE the curving defects starts) and copy-replicated it as repeated overlays over the curved sections working incrementally a few times left to right ! .  A standard edit-technique used in reality ! My program can use the "retouch" mode which will erase the shadow perimeter lines of each one of these patches including the repeated recognizable details replicated by the first rectangular small patchwork panel created.  That which will give a seamless end result to the "repair" with no traces ! .  Otherwise - very GOOD job you did of lower track rail  and some of the planking mild straightening ! 

Regards - Joe F
