Living the dream and happily modeling my STRATTON AND GILLETTE Railroad in HO scale. The SGRR is a freelanced Class A railroad as it would have appeared on Tuesday, August 3rd, 1954, in my personal fantasy world of plausible nonsense.

How about a "water bridge"? There's a column there, too, in the left frame.

I saw a few of these bridges with spouts on them that the PRR used. This is a "kitbash" of an IHC gantry and Tichy spouts.

Bridge #1 sure turned out excellent John.  Can't wait to see #2

Love the aerial view of your beautiful work Wayne.

Stratton and Gillette looks great on that fine old school truss Kevin.

Great job on the deck girder Angelob.  Can hardly wait to see the abutments in place.

 

    Bridge #4 while in progress.

 

More bridges please.
