    Yes I need to add something there. I just haven't been able to find the right support that suits me. There are 4 bridges total with the same design.

    Peeking through the loading shoot to catch a glance of 517.




    SLSF #104 approaches the crossing at mile marker 115 and Mo. State Hwy 13 headed north towards Lowry City.

    Looks like a nice route. Good use of trees and foilage.

    It brings back some fond memories of my youth. When I was about 14-15 years old my family camped out at Pomme de Terre Lake and Stockton Lake. There was the most unusual drive-in theater I've ever seen...north of Pittsburg, along the road to Pomme de Terre State Park. My sister, who could drive, and my cousin and I went there one summer. The drive-in had individual screens for the cars. The screens were about 4 by 8 feet in area. They were arranged in a circle around the concession stand and projection building. The projector had a mirror arrangement that split the projected light up into individual beams that hit the screens in the back and the picture was displayed on the front.

    When I discovered what movie was being shown there one weekend, I told my sister and cousin,

    "Hey! We have to go see this!"

    "Ok", they said, "What is it?"

    "Well", I said, "It stars Sean Connery."

    They said, "Who's Sean Connery?"

    "It's a movie about James Bond."

    They said, "Who's James Bond?"

    ....It was "Dr. No".

    Cheers,
    Fred

    Off-topic: Thanks, Kon, for that link! I found two freeware "railroad roman" fonts there, and there are others that might be useful eventually.

    On-topic: Beautiful route, dricketts! Keep up the great work!

    I like how you've recreated the scene, if you need anything specific in the way of buildings, let me know.

    An MKT switcher pulls some boxcars from their resting spot at the Clinton Feed Store siding.
