Here is my idea on a trackside detail for the railroad. This one happens to be a large detail




Yep, you guessed it, A caved in tunnel.
I built it as a box, so I could do the detailing while I had it on the bench.
I'll take more photos after I install it and built the mountain around it.

Neat idea and quite appropriate for any scale, btw.

my worst trackside detail idea was a nearby forest fire.....;)

NVTiny,

Can I offer a suggestion?

You may want to consider weathering / distressing the timbers on your portal. They're all in great condition, without a crack and not even grey from weather. So, if they're in such great shape, how did the roof collapse? Possibly add some indication of what caused the problem (wreck, fire, landslide, etc) to further the story.
