After the initial straight had been laid, the beginning of the curve was created. Similar to the blocks but now I used concrete bricks to help shape the bend. They were placed laterally.
An alpine bed was created in front of the blocks to help soften the appearance whilst creating a miniature landscape. Half log rolls were attached to the blocks. Not everyone's cup of tea but only time and weather will tell if the final appearance works.
Bit by bit the blocks, track and alpine bed started to take shape.
