This is the new terminus for the tram line. Apparently the shrine on the island is very popular and needed better access than just by boat. Not sure what colour to paint the bridge.

I never tire of these images

 

For the bridge I suggest vermillon

I agree completely!  Really enjoying your pictures.  The bridge at Nikko is vermillion and it looks great - as well as providing a nice contrast to the other colors around the scene.

Ciao,

Option for your layout to cut the 4 feet to keep only the brigde .... should look better

While I'm thinking how I can actually make a bridge like this that can stand up to close-up photography I've started developing a different section. See page 2 of this thread for pictures of the initial construction of this tram terminus and the small depot. You'll notice the surrounds have changed quite a bit.

Pics like this are great to see where more work is required. Somehow the tree trunk is still too shiny and needs a second layer of dull coat.

Thanks, I happened to see this too. It may be suitable.

 

As it's been some time here a few pics of some new developments.

A nice shiny EF81-300 arrived. Some shots to check the weathering.
