New trestle for my railroad.

Started building a trestle for my layout. Started by staining a bunch of wood strips of various dimensions. Glued up the roadbed beams and ties. Then I took a piece of code 83 flex track, and removed all the ties except for every fourth one, to keep the rails in gauge. This track was laid on top of the trestle roadbed, with the gauging ties in between the trestle ties, and taped it in place.

After adding the bents and bracing, it was installed on my layout to take a picture.
In The News: A short freight crosses the high trestle at Cougar Mountain (yet to be built). This mountain, which will rise several inches above, but behind the trestle. It will act as a partial view block, hiding the railroad behind it.
