Covered Bridge over the Moose River

I saw this covered bridge that I had to have., so I got it and put it together. I knew where it needed to go and decided I would have enough time before the next op session to put it in. The work behind where the bridge will go is complete. A little more weathering is needed on the bridge before a permanent install.

The rock work and bridge abutments came from the old layout. The river bends around to the right and disappears.

While I was at it I went ahead and scenicked around to Orrington. Most of the hill was already in place. The rock castings here are from the old layout.

Below the bridge is laying in place just for the picture.

A view of the bridge straight on.

New structure for Searsport

This structure will replace a building flat that was here. 
The building flat will fit in a lot more places and this one fits this tight space perfectly.

Ideas for Bucksport

I made this small building front to cover a hole in the wall.

I then started playing with other building flats to see if something else would work. This one looks OK, but would need some trimming, because it is to close to the track.

This one fits better but I would need a large dock area.

The result is I'll probably have to make something else.

Scene break

Trees placed around a location where the backdrop comes close to the mainline. Hard to tell where the backdrop is.

Breaking out the details

I have been collecting vehicles for the day when I would need them. Now is that time. I used to think that I had a lot, but they are being rapidly sucked up by the layout.

Last Building In Rockland

I got the last structure completed. This kit is of the Wolfeboro NH, freight station. I bought this kit about 14 years ago when it was Lakeside Models.
BEST trains now owns this kit and when I thought I was going to run out of shingles they agreed to send me more for free. Now that is great customer service!!!
I still have to remove it one more time to put the window glazing in and Maybe some lights.
