Scenic considerations

Just because I'm building a small simple shelf layout doesn't mean I have to abandon my love for rugged mountain scenery and bridges. Part of the reason for adding the upper level "dummy" track is to open up scenic possibilities.
Today I cut out the "gorge" that will contain a small river scene and allow me to add the scenic interest of the tracks crossing it on two bridges. The lower level track will cross on a Warren truss bridge and the higher one will cross on a wooden trestle.
Again, this is a question of using stuff I have on hand. I modified the Kato truss bridge long ago to accept ME code 55 bridge track and I had already started building the trestle bents for the other layout using my "poor mans" construction technique.
