    Hi all
    I'm going to try to post a picture of a bridge I built while nursing the
    wife after getting out of the hospital. I got the idea from Shamus after
    seeing the beautiful one he built on his new ho layout. As you can see I
    don't have his skills to say the very least but what do you think? I will
    admit I am happy with it with the skill level I have. I placed it where it
    will go and parden the way the layout looks as I hav'nt been able to
    work on it for four months as the wife is'nt progressing very well.

    I like it a lot. I'm assuming you'll be trimming the piles to meet the terrain once applied? Will be praying for your beloved as well.

    That looks great, is it a kit or did you scratchbuild it?

    Wow! That looks like a labor of love...and a very nice one! Keep us up to date on the bridge's installation...and on your wife's health. We wish her, and you, well.

    Wow, Ron, this is quite an impressive bridge! I admire your patience - there must be hundreds of pieces that you had to trim and fit together. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    My best wishes for the health and a fast recovery of your wife.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. It is scratch built and took me over a month to build. I was inspired by Shamus with his new HO layout and the beautiful one he built. Needless to say I had the time and thats what it takes as there are move pieces then I ever put together before. Thanks again'

    Hi Serious Sam

    Thanks for your comment. Believe me if an 66 year old possum like me can build one you sure can. When I get back out there is up in the air for now but were hoping soon. I'm going to try to post another picture with a another angle and hopefully a better picture. Thanks again'

    Thanks again guys for your kind words. Thats the 2-8-0 I was having problems with. I don't know what the problem was but it is fine now. The lube in it was caked quite a bit so it may have been a left over Model Power Die Cast. I cleaned it and lubed it but I don't think that was the problem. I'm just happy I did'nt haft to send her back. Thanks again'
