|Eeet ees ba-loooon! The plywood bridge and flex track have to be replaced.|
I finished laying track at Falmouth this morning. The next step is to remove the flex track and plywood that is currently standing in for the long trestle. Then I can start building the actual parts of the bridge. But before I do that I need to decide where the abutments will be and how they are made. I assume that the original abutments were built by the RF&P so they will be stone.
In the foreground I used pieces of foam. I used cardboard web for the hill in the rear. That's too big of an area to try to use foam.
I tacked the balloon on the wall to get a look at how it will appear. It is kind of a scene stealer. The final vignette will show the ground crew getting the balloon ready for a flight.
