Yes, that is exactly what I was referring to for that long central span. You could scratch that yourself from ME HO girders and it would be a real showpiece!

As an added operational treat when it's done, try this suggestion: I always have crews blow the whistle when approaching Burro Canyon, as sure as shootin' some locals will be using the bridge for quick passage...sometimes including pack animals! I have never seen a mule or burro win in a head-to-head engagement with an iron horse! However, it would make a great photo to see an ore train paused on the bridge in front of a stubborn pack train that got caught on the bridge.
