      Test fit 2nd Arch;

      Due to the contour the right side of the second arch must be longer, because it won't be seen I fudged on the colors to keep enough white crystal for the top row.... ;

      Of course I have another Taylor plug to top the key .... I will also get the rows on the same plane fore and aft. Now to glue 'em up.

      John, they look great. The color variance fits your scheme. Are they just sitting there? It looks a bit narrow if they are already fixed.

      Thanks Rich,

      Just sitting where it won't fall again.... I was using a glue for the first and last time when it came apart with the tumble ... The Observation is missing steps from bumping the stones, we are aware...

      Thanks for raising a valid concern.

      Thanks youse guys, aw shucks....

      I'm starting the inner arch, you can see the first course by the white line through the track, that's an edge.

      Sitting on my porch, I can see 4 levels as the main line bends back around.... the 'high line' at the back is maybe 1" higher!

      Life is an illusion.

      PS, I have a so far down the road idea that it couldn't go on the last post .... I aim to raise my track on stringers so I can simulate ballasted track. I saved the 100 yards of cribbing for the timbers.... doing so will add to the clearance through the bridge. Clearance is always a concern, so the ps got posted.
