Bridge 327-A

Risrwy@...
 

It's been a busy month for the layout.
Bridge is all plastic and scratch built.
There are two brass I-beams on the main span.
Have to make up the supports and end caps.

Paul it really looks good painted. 
It will be great to see the area with scenery! Keep me posted on the progress. I enjoy seeing other things people are doing even though it’s not EBT. 😂

Looks good. You do need brass I beams to hold up such a long span. I built a model of the present bridge at Cimarron but used the end deck bridges as you did. Always a spectacular site on any layout.

Paul,

Nice work, this the first model I have ever seen on this bridge.   Do you model the Ouray Branch?

Don:
Sort of. The branch runs from Ouray Jct. about ten feet overall. However there is Ridgway and Ouray packed in sort of a narrow gauge time-saver.
I do have #329/330 & #320/319 running the branch though.
