A RR bridge across the Walla Walla River

Had some time this afternoon to do a little preliminary scenery work. The photos below show a small area that I wanted to insert a RR bridge across the Walla Walla River. I marked the fascia on both sides drilled a hole for the insertion of a jigsaw blade. I then cut the section of benchwork out. Once this was removed I had to fabricate a piece of plywood to insert in between the benchwork as the river bed base. When this was at the right level I nailed it in position with a nail gun.
