Got some work done on my layout in the last few weeks. I Kitbashed and scratched a through girder bridge and laid a few more feet of track.

Is that one of those new Atlas bridges?  That looks great!

Thanks Lee, No its not the Atlas bridge. I built that bridge with two Model power bridges. I hacked off the girders from the bridge and cemented them together and built the beams with evergreen I-beams. There was a Step by step article in MR a couple of years ago that
used this method.

Ah yes, from the days before the Step by Step articles were about more than opening a package...
Very nice work.

We need these articles on opening packages it can be quite dangerous if done improperly.  :)

Hey, that @#$#%#@ plastic packaging designed to be anti theft sure is hard to open. I keep a pair of poultry sheers around just for opening packages. My hands (since I have fibromyalgia) aren't strong enough to power a regular pair of scissors through the edges of those packages.
