    FANTASTIC!! :thumb: I like the mountain as well (the 4-8-2) all it needs is the Oil-burning tender, and you've got a cool prototype! :cool: As for the excellently build Central Valley Truss, I gotta hand it to you, it looks great! :)

    Hi guys,

    Thanks a lot for your comments. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and glad to see you all like it. I was afraid the grade might have been a bit much (3.3%), but all my locos, even the B'mann SY makes it up quite easily with 4-5 cars (which is pretty much a "typical" train for the ol' LC&P). Was a lot of work but well worth it.

    Thanks for looking...

    Nice bridge! How long is it? Seems to look a little on the longer side to me

    Steve, Hercdriver & Viperman...Thanks for your comments, they're always welcome...!!! Viperman, I can't tell you how long it is right now 'cause I'm away from home. It's long because it crosses the tracks below at an angle so it needs to be long...

    Thanks for looking...!!! :thumb:

    Fantastic bridge and scenery!! Is it the Walthers one or the Micro Engineering - I can't quite tell.

    Val, it looks to me like that's the Central Valley truss bridge: if so, it's 21" long.

    Oops :oops: Central Valley - that's what I meant, hehe. Thanks Wayne.
