This is the area prior to and in much need of a major renovation.

The idea of the bridge was the catalyst for a major renovation of one portion, of the upper level on this layout.

Thanks so much for posting this unique creation. Got any more photos? I never get tired of looking at it, and I've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate something like it in my (eventual) layout.

Nice stuff!

John

I finally installed the railing. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so phone pictures with have to suffice temporarily.

Great new pics! You've got it blended into the scenery very nicely too.

Trains look great on it.

snmerr,

Thank you for your comments.
I added the picture of the area prior to the renovation and will add some other pictures of the LED lighting some time next(?) week.

Here are some new pictures with the LED lighting installed. The bridge now has down lighting in the rear and up lighting in the front. The 2 dark arches on the left end will have road way installed and additional LED lighting install inside the tubes.

Installed the lights and roadway for vehicle traffic to and from the "Tunnels".
Think lighting makes a difference?
