After much discussion, it was voted on by the members
of the JLS Railroad to finish off the Helix Project by "scenerizing"
the bridge leading up to the H-Yard and the entrance to the tunnel
at the mouth of the Helix. In this photo, you can see the track
removed from the bridge in preparation for weathering.
Here, after being weathered, the bridges dry. The aluminum
foil is there to prevent the destruction of the scenery behind
the bridge from the sprays used in the weathering process
Here, the initial stages of scenery entering the tunnel.
The dry ballast is being laid down and moved into position
After being laid down and perfected, the ballast is
being cemented down
The completed tunnel scenery. The grasses and bushes
have been added and small details put in place such as debris,
and a broken old rusted piece of rack rail
