Thanks Guys,
Progress has slowed now that life is back to normal. I have continued to add layers of foam to build up areas.

I have gotten a little more work done over the past coupe days. I have been working a the top portion of the trestle that the ties will rest on. I had a particle board piece in place as a temporary measure.
To make the new piece I drew a center line around the particle board piece and placed a center nail on each end and in the center.
I had planned on making the whole thing out of cedar but I decided that it would mostly be cover with the ties and I could fake it and just use a cedar end caps and just fake it...

I started by cutting luan plywood in strips. I placed a strip and clamped it to the nails to check the curvature. Once satisfied, i started gluing the stringers to the center piece. I glued 3 pieces on each side,clamping as I went.

Nice trestle and I see you're still raiding the dumpster for foam.

Thanks Frank,
Yes I have plenty of foam. I could fill up a 8x10 building...

After the first 7 pieces were in place. The center and then 3 on each side. I figured out where the the bents wold go and I added spacers (3 thick) on each side. I continued laminating with 4 more pieces on each side...













Finished piece. I just have to add the cedar edges,sand and cut to length. before adding color.

Come on Ty, rock walls aren't that hard if you're using Frocks. And what's the sausage for, you hungry?
