While the track is off perhaps a change of colour to black or even dark brown for the bridge may help?
Yes brown would be OK - I was going to fix some treated timber to either side so the brown would fit in!

I like the r2s Mick;),just a thought that if you made it a covered bridge on the curve you would need quite a clearance for cab roof and pilot on the BH locos to clear but I assume you would have thought of that already:D.
Indeed I had thought of it Neil - I did plonk the BL loco on after I'd put the R2s back in the shed .....

..... it's all about the swept path. I'm off out to cut the track and insert the two curves - and then do as Jon suggests with a colour change!

So, it was out with the cordless angle grinder and a slitting disc. With the cutout section moved away...

...... the metal "tray" was treated to a piece of wood either side and then a change of colour to black (rattle can undercoat). When dry, it was repositioned and the R2 curves fitted using clamps......
