Hello Si,

I totally agree with Herb: 1st bridge is a good representation but a bit too posh/expensive looking/well engineered for an outfit like the MMM RR. Looks too much like an A Class railroad. Definitely ditch the wedge shaped ballast if used as a railroad bridge.

2nd bridge: bin it, or use as a roadway under bridge** as per Woodie.

3rd bridge : looking good for a NG railroad, actually looks quite similar to some on the D&RGW's San Juan extension line.

** you might think this should be "overbridge" but not so. Bridges are named from the Railroads point of view, so a bridge that spans over the track is an underbridge, 'cos the track runs under the bridge. Not a lot of (non) railway folk know that ! May not apply to U.S. useage ??

Regards, Michael
