Stone Arch Viaduct construction

For those of you who haven't seen my entire layout, here's a video in 2 parts that was done by Chris Lyon (about a month ago) who is well known for making videos of layouts. Hope you like it and comments are always welcome.

Video Part 1
I just saw that portion of your video that spoke of the embossed wall paper brick work. I may have to consider something like that to build my stone arch viaduct,...rather than plaster molds etc. https://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/node/37327

Lloyd, I watched your video again this morning and I really like the weathering on that locomotive and Evergreen box car. You should do a post on the locomotive weathering methods you used. The Evergreen car's weathering is perfect.

Greg
Greg, I can't take the credit for the weathering. The locomotive was done by Ralph Renzetti (Weathering - A Touch of Yesterday) and the box car was done by Denis Vanasse (ProWeathering).
I just ordered from Badger, their special sale and should be getting my stuff in about 3 months, in the mean time, Ralph will be starting is clinics online in our Facebook group "ModelrailroadingLive" on how to weather cars and loco's.

I love the 3D embossed paper. You just need to make sure to align properly the sheets so to blend the joints and do a bit of weathering. It's a great product used by diorama builders in Europe. (the paper comes from Greece)

Beautiful work!
Thanks Ian, more to come.

Lloyd: A have to again say that that last photograph of your work is outstanding!!! The leaves on the roof, the utility pole and lines, grasses and other vegetation its superb!!!!

Wow....

Greg
Thanks Greg, as you see, I love details. By taking pictures, I notice areas that need better care and more details. For me, a scene needs to tell a story.
