As I have been doing for the past several summers now, I am starting the bench work for another section of the layout. This one is going to be 5 feet long and is called the Harney section.
With this being a shelf type of layout with the depth being about 18
inches I don't think I could represent the old river path or the
shoo-fly path very well. What I may do is to have the SP line built up on a levy then through the realignment area.
My plan for this section which will be 5 feet long is to bring the river back in from the front and progress between the SP and WP tracks as it does in many places along this line. The WP line will be carried across the river by a BLMA brass thru truss bridge I purchased several years ago. This section will also begin a transition from a photo back drop to a modeled canyon wall back drop.
