Hi All

 been at it again and this is what I came up with. The base for this in in Harry Brunk's book Up Clear creek. I did widen it for standard gauge and changed the span some. But think it turned out ok. The photo is the Z scale version with one of my stock car kits on it .

thanks

That would be a very credible job if it was in O scale, but in Z ???

Thanks, but no optivisor for me, I just take my glasses off :). The bridge  side trusses are  made from 3 laser cut frames then glued together with the support rods in between the layers. The bottom deck is in two parts with a spline joint at center span. Then has a single section for the track support beams. Not a hard build think the first one took me maybe a hour and a half . second one a hour.
