Holy cow.  A fantastic model of a beautiful bridge.  You should consider writing this up.

Thanks.  It will really look good when I get decoders in my U23s and can run the Apollo-1 across.

For Frank's sake I will forsake the announcement of an assembled and painted model of this very bridge to be released next week.   ;D

All jest aside, that is some excellent work Frank!

Frank, I'm simply in awe.  This project is a perfect illustration of the things we can accomplish in N scale in a reasonably average size home layout.

Check your in box... I have an idea!

I almost missed this post, but decided to start reading from the beginning.  Wow, this has an absolutely amazing ending (or almost ending!)

The modeling displayed here is A+ quality and truly an inspiration!

Nice work!

I was able to install the bridge decking this weekend, so my tiny conductors won't fall through to the river.  Here's a quick grab shot:



This fresh wood needs some paint to match the ties, and then just a few details remain.
