Try looking at some Führerstandmitfahrt videos, like this one:


The driver's cab view provides some interesting trackside detail.  I don't know if this particular vid shows any snow or rock sheds, but it will give you an "in" to this family of videos.


Cheers!

Thanks, Gordon. That's great footage with lots of track side details.

There are a lot of Führerstandmitfahrts out there.  Signals and trackside equipment will be different than your era, but other scenery not much changed.

As far as the avalanche shed, this is what we are talking about:



Although most are concrete these days:


Talk again next week.  I'm off on vacation to a place where there are no comms - no internet, no cell service, nothing.


Cheers!

Moving right along...





Here I had to do something with the DC connectors:



...so, a foam rock aggregate does the trick:



And, lastly, the small train station:



All buildings have lighting installed. Lots more landscaping to do

Thank you, Ulrich. Being new to model railroads (and miniature modeling in general), the start was a bit of a head scratcher. But I'm enjoying this a lot more now that I have a better understanding of the process.

In a few weeks I should at the final stage of fixing minor damage, pathways, mounting figures, tree placement, etc.


Ralph.

Very good, Ralph!  That church reminds me of the one in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland:

https://www.dropbox.com/preview/Europe%202014/2014-08-12%2007.48.43.jpg 

The stone viaduct also is particularly well done.  Now all you need is an Alpine background....  And to finish the pink rock candy mountain.

Cheers!

Thanks, Gordon. Yes, it does resemble the one in Lauterbrunnen, but it's actually the one in the town of Sertig-Dorfi in Switzerland (it took me a good amount of web surfing to find this one!):





Unfortunately, I have to remove the church's tower section since it sits too high on my layout when I close the box lid. I added magnets to both the church and the inside of the tower so that it holds together when reassembled.

Finished off the last tunnel portals today and have started to work on the last 'Pink Candy Mountain' to carve out the locations for a charming little Alpine Chapel ('St. Berhard's Chapel/Faller # 232239) and a small hunting lodge (as tiny as the chappel is, I just managed to squeeze a small light inside):



Can't wait to get started on all the detail work and then finally get the trains running again!

Ralph.
