Not sure what to say to that... except I hope you come back some day...

You were really doing well and it was an inspiration to see all that progress...Huh?

I'm beginning to realize that Windows 10 and sound decoders have a lot in common. There are so many things you have to change in order to get them to work the way you want.

I'm posting this to let you know that I'm leaving the hobby. My website is down already, that's why the pictures are gone. 

Thanks for everything!

Yeah, I was so excited about the newest posts...but I can't see anything either.

Today I've laid out the main line between Bad Adomeit and Rosenheim, including the industrial area that is being served by the main line here.

I added some extra plywood so that tomorrow I can start playing with the track arrangement in this area:

Yesterday evening I sealed the surface with a mix of white glue and water. Now everything is dry and the bridge is sitting approximately at it's final position on the layout.

Sure looks good Michael! What are you using for the mortar?

P.S. Try not to drop this one! Okay?!?Smile, Wink & Grin

 

Dave,

I use a mix of plaster of paris and dry pigments (black, brown and yellow). And yes, the idea is to keep the bridge in one piece Big Smile.

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

I have filled the mortar lines on one side of the viaduct and the inside of the arches. The other side will happen tomorrow.

The bridge looks absolutely majestic, Michael. Great job on the color. Thumbs Up

Looks good.  Must have taken forever to lay all those bricks. Whistling

The bridge survived being taken outside and painted Big Smile. I put on a coat of a dark grey primer followed by an overspray of textured paint.

 

 

 

Now I will have to wait until this is completely cured before I can start dry painting. Patience, patience...

I've added the last few missing details, including the bases for the catenary masts. The next step will be painting the viaduct.

Finally the viaduct is coming together again! Now let's hope I don't break it this time...

I don't know about the rest of you but I would love to learn how such a massive structure was "destroyed by accident". I have all sorts of images floating in my head.

 

It's a cardboard structure. All you have to do is lift it at one end and not support the other... no earthquakes needed Big Smile!

In case you're wondering what's going on with me...

 

I destroyed the viaduct by accident and am now in the process of rebuilding it. That will take a week or so of laser time.
