    Here are some shots of the removable bridge. I'll build some abutments to cover the aluminum support brackets.

    WOW thanks Gary!!! Awesome pics.

    That looks fairly easy to build and it also looks great!! Mine will span about a 5' gap.

    Thanks again Gary, Ill for sure be coming back to you and this thread if and when I do my bridge for my layout :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :thumb:

    Looks awesome. If I decide to continue with my "wrap around" plans for the layout, I'll need to build something similar to span a double door entry :)

    My only problem is the doors swing into the office.:razz:

    One note: My layout is of the shelf type, with the shelves just sitting on the shelf brackets. There is a 90 degree corner to the left of the bridge, and it has about 1/4" of play - meaning that I can push the shelf back when putting the bridge in place, then I can wedge it up against the bridge when I'm running. This makes taking the bridge out quite easy too, but it is stable when I'm running trains.

    The shelf that I move is 27 feet long, so the 1/4" is very little movement when compared to the radius.
