The bridge is progressing well with the rail bridge now painted, transoms installed and western abutment completed. Construction is in progress for the road approach span and a mock up of Narellan made - photos will be added in next post.
One of my aims was to try and create a layout that lends itself to photography and a lot of experimentation is happening at present. A few shots were taken tonight to learn more about creating extensive depth of field and playing with lighting and post processing.

I am happy with these results and look forward to finishing off the detail and getting the rest of backdrop in place. There was quite a lot of dust and fluff on the locos, they will get a good brushing before the next shoot. I would like to look into simulating smoke and steam for some future shots any one have recommended products for this??
Back to the bridge work Cheers for now
