Got my new Trainworx bridge today
Posted by emdmike on Thursday, November 12, 2020 1:22 PM

One of the focal pieces for my new 3x8 layout i am planning showed up today.  Courtsey of the Trainworx flash sale they had one some of their bridge kits that were already built by their master craftsman.  This one is insprired by the 1954 Lionel catalog cover.  I can fit a single track O gauge line across it, or as will probably happen, double track Prewar Lionel OO.  I am leaning toward a green bridge with pale yellow/cream lettering and a light grey deck surface. I will also put a strip of yellow LED's under the bridge deck to backlight the lettering with a soft glow.  The next fun is building the new benchwork with a friend since I suck at wood working.   Mike

While my bridge was built, they have them in kit form on their website, along with other neat building kits.  There are some built bridges still available on the flash sale they are having.   If I can come up with enough prewar OO track, there will be a double track mainline over that bridge sometime this winter.  Shooting for a unique small layout that is magazine article worth!  Not often you see a running prewar OO layout in this day and age!   Mike
