Boy, photoshop out the B&O Museum ceilings and walls in the background on some of those photos and you'll have some real stunners! There are a couple where just cropping would work.

Great job, Ed.  8)

Nice shots, like the bridge, what are the piers that the round colums set on made of, styrofoam? Like the course  concrete look.

The bridge was built by Martin Myers .. its actually part of a 2 module set that interfaces the 1Track code 55 with the 3Track code big modules ..

Did you
ever manage to get the 'sunny' side of 2236?  Nice photos, even if you hit-and-run us on your way out of town...

Well above average, old bean.  Only thought would be to blacken the front grille on the MP a little bit.

Drive carefully... Don't let that li'l vuvu get the better of you...

The base and top beams are made of a manufactured trim lumber that looks like particle board. rated for exterior use though. Cut on a table saw and just scuffed with sandpaper. Looked like a decent stand in for concrete. The posts are 3/16 OD Plastruct tube. There are bamboo skewers doweled through the tubing to hold it all together.

 Need to repaint the bridge. Didn't think the black overspray showed that bad.
