Now the street as it is at the moment, my photo shot platform is too small. :blush:
More greenery coming, more white fences, more road pieces....once that's done I can start on the entrances to the main street of my town centre.

The main street pavement is finished (the last 16x17 stud area in front of the bank had to be done), and so is the Ford Dealer's spare parts/sales office/service reception/call-it-what-you-like store's ceiling.

Your town is looking great 'LT.' The street looks awesome and the buildings have wonderful interiors. I love how you even tiled the ceilings.  :wub:

Also, your buildings look a lot better with roofs on them when on display and overview pics.  :wink:

I hope to see more soon.  :thumbup: :classic:

A huge w-i-p going on here, this will sit about 32 studs away from the bank building to the right side.....a rail bridge will be joining it too ! :wink:
More to come, more lighting on the bridge plus the rail bridge....the joining plates and scenery too....a lot of work involved.
Keep watching ! :classic:

I will work on the rail bridge today and start on the entrance and exit points of the road bridge.....the 32 stud piece you see is the length of it. It goes over an old deep creek bed/irrigation channel.
Keep watching everyone.....I will try and position it correctly too today for photographing. :wink:

Wait a minute... The entrance and exit points have to be inclined, right? I can see you will have a lot of work on your way!

Not always, this is only a small gap the road and bridge roadway are on the same level.....keeping it easier to work with while still being totally realistic. :wink:
What is hard is the number of 8x16 tiles I need for the roads at 4 bucks a pop and a simple stretch of road costs 16 bucks not to say how much adding T-junctions is.....oh, well....I'll Brick On eh ? :laugh:

I'm loving that bridge 'LT', and its not even done yet. I can't wait to see it finished. It will be awesome.  :drool:

I want to build a bridge of my own now. Also, what is that large piece you are using.

Thanks 'TBB', that piece came in the 2007 harbour set.
I hope to build some the link roadways tomorrow once I have made some more cash. :blush:

Oh sorry, I've seen your new picture of the bridge. I thought that the bridge was going to be on the side of the road, not together with the road. I got fooled with the other pictures  :laugh: . About the road pieces, didn't you like if LEGO made singular sets with just one stretch of road?
