Model railroad retaining walls uk,model train shows tampa florida zip,model trains hobbylinc japan,irvine model railway exhibition 2015 - How to DIY

While retaining walls are a fact of life, the real railroads probably used them only when necessary and the cost of the land and a cut were too expensive.
These photos are all taken on the former Lehigh Valley line that runs through the Lehigh Gorge at Jim Thorpe. The first example shows the handiwork of Italian immigrants who were so talented they could cut stone to fit with no mortar needed.

My last example is another curved beauty, but this time show how the wall was installed to maintain grade, not fight erosion. While the failure is not catastrophic, it is usually the slow creep of time that causes them to slowly overturn.
