The Bridge on the River Malbaie - Part 7

This afternoon, we remade the fascia near River Malbaie. As said in a previous post, the fascia snapped because there was too much stress.

The new fascia was allowed to follow a natural curve and no stress was induced while putting it in place.

This time, we learned our lesson and cut the fascia prior to any installation. The fascia on the left side of the river was also reinstalled to keep stress at minimum on the MDF board.

It was also a good occasion to make the benchwork larger were the river flow along the track. This will reinforce the feeling the railway is making its way between the mountain and the river.

 Next step is fixing the abutment and starting the river.
