Thanks for your kind comment @Scottl Its now up to the rock and finishing crew to bring it to life!
On the home front, I'm spending a pleasant day filing in some more missing scenery contours at the east side of Summit, about 3' long, pic below. Plaster bandages come next,

Looking great Otto!   Just getting the bare plaster form in makes such a difference.  Can’t wait to get this point on my layout......

Fascias make all the difference framing the scenes. Here we are, making the (original 3%) grade at Gish. In my timeframe, that's the westbound, downhill track. Progress being made :D
Fun stuff.

Tonight, I'm working on Bridge A63, just above Cajon station, on the original 1886 line. Unlike many of the newer bridges that have concrete piers and abutments, this one has original piers and abutments made of stone, see (lousy) photo I took many decades ago. Lots of carving involved...
Fun stuff, Otto

Spray bombed the carvings, and used light grey pastels, powdered, to brush in the mortar lines. Highlighted some stones with colored pencils. Fixed it in with Dullcote. Looks pretty good. More carving to do tonight on the head walls. Fun stuff...
