Hi Duane  :mex:



It's always pretty impressive to see a small train on such a large bridge ...

... & of course all the more better for being narrow gauge as well !  :cool:



Your 'styro-steel'(TM) version is looking very fine indeed !  :thumb:

You seem to have made custom iron-bridge making look easy Duane !  :shocked:

I'm sure it was the result of mucho plano & swearo though !!  :f:




Can we have some important facts & figures for the 'Guiness Book Of Records' please ?  :brill:

How tall is the deck from the new concrete footings ?  L:

How far from the deck to bottom of the canyon ?  L:

How long is the span of the rail deck ?  L:



I just love facts & figures sometimes.  :P



:cb: :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb:



Si.

Si-thanks!

I tend to build things rather than engineer them, so I use the word planning loosely...

Overall, the bridge is 60” in length, and the rails are 36” above the water.
The main span is 35” long and about 20” from the deck to concrete footings.

If my math is correct, that would make the bridge in scale about 240’ in length and about 140’ in height.
I’m doing the math in my head, so take it with a grain of salt.

That's a perfect compliment to the rock work,
which has always been an impressive stand-out feature,
as is the proportion of the backdrop.

Superbly blended. :2t: :apl:

Duane

That is one great looking bridge across the canyon  :moose: :moose: :moose:

After my trip DU, I am rethinking scenery for the bridge I am installing.
