Especially like that one part of the wall.  One has to look closely to make sure that course didn't disappearYesYesYes

 

Wrapped up the alphabet.  Perhaps the numbers now.

 

Here's an early picture of (one) bridge to the right. 

 

Anyone have a layout picture of (two) bridges to the left, or right? Smile

Not exactly left or right, but more like above and below...

The engineer of the locomotive sees the bridge behind him to the right.

If an engineer was traveling to the left on the bridge above, would see the engineer down below, to the left. 

Always love your work Wayne, carry on.

The swing bridge on the Boothbay Railway Village layout. It's from a few year ago, lots of work has been done since then.

More bridges please - how about a covered bridge?
