Replacement Bridge

Work continues on the layout, though slowly.  The main bridge at Glover’s Bend had been damaged in an accident, and frankly it wasn’t very well put together to start with, so the CH&FR decided to replace it with a new one.  The new bridge is almost ready for painting, and then will be permanently installed.

The model is a Central Valley Model Works Pratt Truss bridge, the high-portal version that can allow double-stack trains to pass through. It’s a very nice kit, with lots of molded-in detail and a fairly easy assembly process. The optional add-on walkway and railing kit adds an extra touch, I think.

    • Thank you. I hope to continue providing good content. Working through some unrelated “stuff” at the moment. More to come, though.
