rivers, Creeks, and Ponds Oh My! Pt 5
Author: santafedan

This set is from the defunct Inland Pacific of Terry Gilmore. It was dismantled when he moved after retirement.
I will be posting a lot from this railroad.  
This was a multi-layered layout.  Double deck with a third layer under them as a staging yard.
The backdrop was about 1/2 inches from the roadbed.

Here is a pond spilling into a large creek.  
The creek was done first.  Terry built the spillway.  I painted it with white dryish tempera paint to get grooves in the paint. I covered the white with shades of gray paint to get the flowing effect.  The pond was next with EnviroTex.  I used enough to get the pour to flow over the spillway and along the creek.

Three more.
Two more rivers each with a different "bottom".  They had different sources of rock.
The other was just along side the track.

This wraps up the IP layout.  

I have one more layout to do.

Interesting spill way photo.

Every day on the way home from work I pass a spill way for Lake Manssas and when water is going over it, it goes down in sheets with a cascading triangles of water from top to bottom!
