Capon Bridge Photos

Posted on August 25th, 2010, by Mike

Here are some more shots of Capon Bridge, which is my drop-leaf segment at the entry into my layout. At the moment, it’s just sitting there by itself, as I chose to build it as a unit first, and then build the rest of the layout up to it. So, it stands as a lonely sentinel, prohibiting nothing since one can merely walk around. When the rest of layout is built, though, it will fold down into a recess such that it will be completely protected.

It is entirely scratchbuilt, aside from the plate girders which came from an Atlas kit. I think I need to get some plexiglass to create short walls on each side, to catch falling rolling stock before it has a chance to meet the hard floor. The scenery is only completed up to the “topsoil” layer, ready and waiting for ground foam and other forms of vegetation.
