Last couple of days, I have worked on the bridge install and the creek it is crossing.

I am re-using a bridge abutment design from my N scale layout re-size for TT Scale and adjusted for the layout.

Test fit of abutments and bridge

Then added a primer sealer to the abutments. Once these are dry I will apply a soupy mixture of joint compound and paint.

This is what my N Scale one looks like

I also got four TT Scale bridge shoes coming from Shapeways (photos of my N Scale ones)

Looking real good Dwayne.

You have a laser? Looks like it from that abutment you got there.

That's great. Who's the manufacturer of the laser? I've been thinking of getting one next year maybe.

I've researched them a while back. I definitely would get a Spectrum.
