It was one of those good ideas in principle Ash. I think I've posted in my line's thread about what happened, but in a nutshell, they were damaged in a freak wind event, which also served to show they were quite fragile. In the end I used the carcasses as a mould to make two piers from concrete, and then painted stonework on (though not very artistically Rolling Eyes )

This is the result:

This was during the phase of constructing the trackbed, and below are a couple of scenes now it's bedded in




And thanks for asking the question. I had forgotten that I'd started a thread on it's construction under the Buildings heading Laughing

Great idea to use the shells as molds, but I've got to disagree with you about the paintwork Phil - you've done a better job than I could manage and it looks great, and will only improve as it weathers Very Happy
