I had a difficult design problem. 
The main depot area had to be incorporated into the patio area, the only real outdoor area that made sense. 
But I live on the side of a mountain, so that meant no easy way to run track from that point.
The bridge/trestle not only gets me to the point where I can run the main line up thru my valley,
but is a usable place to put a pair of reasonable length arrival/departure tracks,
as well as a drill track long enough to assemble a 60 boxcar consist for the Big Boy. 
There is not a level area on the entire property large enough to do that...
