The Valley river is really more of a creek than a river and doesn't need that long of a bridge so I shortened one. The first pic shows the piece that was removed and the second pic is after it was painted and weathered.

Well done. The bridge looks like it was built that length to start with.

Mike,

Your bridge looks very nice. It's hard to see where you made the cut. You did a neat job.

The bridge painters need to get on the job; I see a little rust here and there.

Mike

Hummm Murphy. I've come in contact with that branch many times in the past, present and I suspect the future. This being Christmas Eve and all, eh Timmy.

Nice little bridge Mike.

Oops, Santa's on his way I better get to bed, don't want to mess this up.

Bridge looks good Mike, but on my monitor the pictures are quite dark. Any chance you can brighten them up?

Looks great Mike. The shortened bridge has more character than the original

Next project will be Murphy Oil. There were several bulk oil dealers on the branch and this is my version of one. First project is the main building. We have a lot of Quonset huts in this part of the state and at least one oil dealer used one so I got the Rix hut to use for this. The kit is pretty straight forward, goes together quickly. Most of the real huts I've seen are built on a concrete slab which doesn't come with the kit so I added one made from a piece of sheet stock.
