Charley, as for the river bridge scene, If you never locate a suitable stone bridge for the road bridge. I would say, use an old decrepid out of service 30 or 40 ft flat wagon with trucks wheels and buffers removed. I did this years ago on an American Narrow Gauge show layout, no one was the wiser.

Good luck.

You can get metal toothed gears for strength plus they are super powerful and quite, think i may have suggested this before in one of your super videos in the past,all the best john from rugby.

Perhaps some of those could be useful. (Here is just one example, but a simple Google search will yield tons…

you seem to be a very experienced railway modeller, well done !

Sarla Daga says:

Very well explained. I find you are using circuitron tortoise switches. Do you use their AR2 system as well. I need to learn more about model train electronics. Please provide me all the links of your video in YouTube, so that I can follow them. Thanks for your help. Please reply thru email :
Best wishes,
