    I have been looking at the Wakthers Conerstone Bascule bridge. I was wonder if anyone could tell me the length of the actual bridge not including the approach and building? What is the approach anyways? I saw on the internet where it had a footprint of 34 inches in length. I figured a bridge almost three foot long in HO was quite long. Thanks for your help.

    ...and tall. We have one on the club layout. I'll get measurements for you when I get out there. The thing is a monster and sure is cool looking, too. :thumb:

    We have a real bascule bridge at the club now? I'm not gonna know what to do with myself when i get back at the end of the month. Did pigs start flying or did something freeze over?

    You have been outta town awhile haven't you? :D Yep, after 2 years of waiting, it's finally in...maybe that's why we've had 35" of rain in the last 6 weeks :rolleyes: I'll get a pic and post it tomorrow.
