Walters double-track truss bridge
Posted by rpc7271 on Tuesday, March 12, 2002 9:28 AM
I am designing a new layout and want to include at least 1 Walters double track truss bridges (part #933-3012) Does anyone know what the track spacing for this bridge is or in what issue of Model Railroader it is reviewed in? Thanks

You might want to check the Walthers catalog or their website. usually the demensions etc are listed for each product.

I dont know what the official c-c spacing is for the tracks, but the out-to-out dimension on the truss in the Walthers catalog is five inches. I would like to caution you that I have been told this bridge does not have adequate overhead clearance to run double stack cars. If this is important to you, you may have to do a little kitbashing to lower the floor system enough to provide the vertical clearance.

Good Luck - Ed

I just measured my bridge and the track centerline spacing is 2 3/8 in. or 55.5 mm. Hope this helps.
