Central Valley Truss Bridge

Work nears completion on the new CV Truss Bridge for the layout. I painted it last night (black, of course). I’ve got a few tweaks to make, and I need to set the piers in place and level, and then we will be back in operation.

This is the taller version of the model, made to accommodate double-stack container cars.

The piers shown in the picture here are just holding the bridge up off the table. When in stalled, the piers will be in their proper positions at the ends of the span, not in the middle.
