I went with a steel girder bridge instead of a closed deck. I think it looks more like something a mining co would use for such a small tramway.

Hi Larry

That bridge scene looks GREAT !
FANTASTIC scene !

Love the cribbing, the extreme slope & concrete work...
...have some moose ! :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

" A little closer view for Woodie... "

I'm a bit worried about Woodie though.
His eyesight seems just fine, changing microscopic Shay gears.
But needs close-ups to see large geological features !

Si.

Hi Si, I do what I can to help Woodie see important things as they were meant to be seen.

Hi Ken
I'll raise - :moose::moose:
Larry nice work :2t::2t: Keep the photos coming please.

This is starting to look very good indeed.

Let me know when you are ready to tackle the incline and I'll provide all the "long-range" help I can,

Hey John, I am rethinking the incline. Instead of a built up foundation of stone or concrete, maybe steel beams with cross bracing. This would look very cool I think. The under track workings would show to great advantage. One large problem, how to make miles of plastic beams. Buying them would get very expensive for a structure this large.

Here's another view of my layout...
