This overpass has been identified by all 3 names, so you can call it what you want it to be called!
Hey, I've been there and I really like that GP35 on the bridge - it kinda looks familiar! Fantastic job on the bridge.
I have been there, too, but I do not remember the paint being so fresh nor the steel so free of rust! In addition, the road surface is nowhere near that smooth!
It doubtlessly looked more like your model when the "torpedo-boat" GP-35s roared on the Frisco.
One observation I might offer is that Wellington Ave. (you call it McCausland Ave. some might call it Wabash) makes a distinct drop towards the River des Peres from the viewpoint shown in 012.jpg and 011.jpg. Your treatment is more pleasing, but the real view is of concrete street and channelized stream.
Now that I think of it, do not change anything; your treatment looks better than reality!
Very, nice modeling. If you get time let me know how you did the street. I need to put some in, but am a little skittish. As James say's, I draw up a little. Great looking street.
I hear ya, Bill. That is some fine modeling. I especially like the concrete work and the overall effect for a scene as challenging as this. Nice work.
Great work! We're going to have to get a 4500 on there soon.
The eastbound entrance to Lindenwood Yard lives! Nice work! Love the '55 Chevy.
Bill, the street is a piece of 1/8" masonite painted with Pollyscale Weathered Black, striping is chartpak tape, sidewalk and curbing from styrene sheets, abutments are blocks of wood painted Testors Light Aircraft Grey channel sides are masonite and painted the same. The scene is less than 12" deep.
John, Stumpendous ...Stop you in your tracks scene.
Really like the 3 loco lashup too!
I can't say enough about your concrete work and weathering - so realistic.
Ok, I may try the masonite, it looks good. Its a little, hard to decide, you know, they have so many ways folks make roads. Lots are a little messy. I even seen one where you sprinkle Hydro cal on a wet surface then sand when dry. Woodlands has a system. You can buy the sheet styrene. Some use wood, foam core. WOW!
Bill, you are correct, there are many tried & true methods, try one off-site of your railroad and judge which method you are satisfied with. The end result is your satisfaction.
