    Hiya folks,

    If anyone has any bridge pics from thier layouts that they could easily find and post in this thread, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm going blind scrolling thru threads after searching the forum for 'bridge'

    Any kind of bridge will do, any kind at all. Maybe this thread could become the 'bridge library' for future searchers.

    Thanks in advance to all who participate! :)

    Scoob, I still think that's one of my fave shots ever on The Gauge.......

    I had a closer one of the Shane & Bailey, but it got lost in the most recent website revision . . . . .

    This is a picture of the only bridge on my layout(so far), its a plate girder with a ballasted deck.
    Micro-Engineering makes it, if thats any help.

    Thank you, thank you everyone!! What a great response so far, I think we may just have a 'bridge library' WELL underway here!

    My brains running full speed with ideas now! Thanks again and come on the rest of you..."put up your bridge pics!!"

    Here's Another One (N Scale)

    I cut the plate girders off of one of those little Atlas bridges, glued them to a piece of flex-track, added gaurdf timbers & stringers made from strip styrene, & made the masonary piers from sheet styrene, covered with H&R stone sheet. I also glued an HO( box girder between the plate girders to give it a "bottom", for those "prying eyes"...:D

    Those are some great pics! Wonderful work everybody!!! I'd love to see along tain pass through those three bridge Marty! Terrific work, you scratchbuilders!!

    Pete, would you be willing to take a few more shots of the vertical lift bridges from different angles? Did you kitbash this structure?

    Each vertical lift is:
    1- Atlas through truss bridge.
    4- Atlas HO pier girders
    8- Atlas N pier girders
    8- Grandt line 43" cable sheaves ( for the lift)
    2- Virnex industries pumps ( lift motors)
    2- pieces balsa block ( counterweights)
    several lengths of Plastruc "I" beam
    some scrap styrene sheet
    about 8' of 00 ("two ought") deknatel surgical silk ( lift cables )
    about a pound and a half of inventive imagination, and a whole lot of gleeful hacking with a razor saw!

    Thanks for the parts list Pete! I might make one for a road that goes off the layout over a river...Actually I'll only be modeling one half of it since its close to the layout edge. Thanks for the inspiration!
