Allen Heimsoth's T-module River

The Cut

The bridge

Here we see a Rock Island unit emerging from a cut about to cross the river. The cut is achieved by putting rock scenery between the viewer and the track. In addition to creating a more realistic topography, it adds to a sense of space causing the train to momentarily drop out of view.

The Bridge

A new powder blue and white Rock Island unit leads a freight as it's about to cross the river.


The Bluff


The rock face was created by breaking ceiling tile into pieces and covering with a layer of earth colored paint. This resulted in a light weight rock wall with the detail often found using heavy plaster molds.
