It has been a while since we visited the topic of Bridges and Trestles. Hopefully you have some new model or prototype photos to share.

Here are a few shots of a very impressive covered bridge on Al Churella's Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes RR (On2). Al lives just outside Atlanta, GA. Like most of the other structures on Al's basement-filling layout, it is scratch built.

I don't recall if I've shown this.



No build images though ....
The bridge is a wooden kit from Scale Structures limited; The Dinky Creek bridge in HOn3.
All rivets and fittings are in metal .....

One more from Al Churella's Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes RR before I change to another Atlanta area layout.

Some of the bridges & trestles found on Graham MacDonald's Ottawa & Arnprior layout.
Graham donated this entire layout to a museum in Perry Sound.

Thanks for jumping in, Greg & Darryl.

Here is another from the Atlanta area. A trestle on Perry Lamb's Utah, Colorado & Western HO layout.

The new New England Brownstone stone viaduct kit:


There'll be some big mill buildings and a dam in the corner behind the bridge.

Very nice, Dave & John!

Here is a signature scene on Peter Youngblood's HO scale Santa Fe layout outside Atlanta.






If you look way down at the bottom of the gorge, you will see that Peter accomplishes some 'forced perspective' by having an n-scale train run thru the scene.

Wow! What an impressive start, to this month's gallery!
That long covered bridge by Al Churella is indeed impressive!
I can also see why that beautiful scene on John Elwood's layout is a favorite spot for many to photograph!

Hi Guys,

This is a fantastic bridge model. Thanks for the photos! My question is, what is the purpose of the structures prodtruding from the roof of the covered bridge?
