“It was nice to see my kit bashing of trestles. Here are two more.
I made a coal dump. That is real coal off Ebay.
The second is short curved trestle at Harpers Ferry with the Susquehanna River. It meets the Potomac River here.
I had a problem with my scenery as shown by the open hole. The Harpers Ferry Station did not cover it. I added a canopy and trees. This is where the B&O crossed the Potomac River
The truss bridges are cut down Atlas kits. The supports for twin track girder bridge are Atlas bridge piers #81.
They are cut horizontally at the slots and then vertically. They are glued and .080 styrene added. Then weathered.
Now on to Bob.
You may remember he recently sent in this wiring ‘how-to’.
Now he’s helping with something I get mailed a lot on – lihts and LEDs:
I picked up some dwarf signals at Aliexpress. I got 1o I a pack for $11.04 USD. You get 10 dwarf signals, 10 red LEDs, 10 Green LEDs, and 10 resistors.
Even though you must assemble them, to me they are a good buy. The only problem is that the dwarf signals have no backs. So once I position the LEDs, I use hot glue on the back to secure them.
To finish them I apply liquid tape to the back.
They look good when installed. If any light shines through the backs, a touch of liquid tape solves the problem.
Thanks for hosting this great site.

A huge thanks to Don and Bob.
Please do keep ’em coming, folks, it’s all getting a bit thin on the ground this end.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to take that magical first step.
