Default Re: trestle

Cool! I pick up a train magazine every now and then for a lookee and I love those trestle bridges. I suppose I like the kind of layout they're in too, with "high cliffs" and pine trees on the mountain sides, etc.
Great start.

BTW. When do you get time to eat and sleep....?? Your modelling output is prodigious to say the least!

Default Re: trestle

Since the last posting the trestle has changed hands and is now mine to complete and incorperate into my layout.

Here's a few pics of some of the progress so far.
Work done at time of posting.
  • center span slightly re-engineered to appear to be more structurally robust.
    lead bents have had all upright timbers installed.

    Work still required to be done.
    All cross bracing material to be installed on bents and center span.
    Approuch abrupments to be constructed.
    Approuch spans to be constructed.

For the approuching spans I'm going to go with a mixture of differant spans from http://blackbearcc.com/
They include http://www.blackbearcc.com/abk_ho.shtml on what I'm currently reffering to the leading end, and a combination of Truss http://www.blackbearcc.com/tbk_ho.shtml and deck bridges http://www.blackbearcc.com/DBK_HO.shtml for the trailing end.

Some of it is friction fit into place, other parts are glued into place with wood glue or with Testors clear parts glue since my wood glue went kinda 'funny' on me.
