I have wanted to include a bridge in a trackplan section for a while now.
I do like the old wooden trestles very much.
By the late '30s though, I figure most would have been replaced with steel.
I can still use the odd small-trestle perhaps somewhere or other.

I have had some difficulty in finding a suitable steel bridge kit.
I was after a through girder truss bridge, of a fairly impressive size.
Of course there is nothing available in 1:35 scale, so a large HO one is what I needed.
I kept on looking though, just couldn't find what I wanted.

Anyway, the other day I found just what I wanted.
The price was good on eBay, for what is normally a pretty costly kit.
So didn't hang about, ROW engineers were consulted about sizes etc.
10mins later we ordered some serious steel !!



Michael, this is the one I told you about, it arrived the other day.
Here's one of the 'pack shots' of what it looks like.
The span is 450mm, which in 1:35 scale, is a tad over 50-feet.
I checked out the parts, WOW what a FANTASTIC kit, gonna be fun !!
