1) Build Shoefly


2) Get a big a$$ed crane (750Tons)


3) Pickup the little bridge


4) Place on layout

Okay, so I'll bite.. where is that?
And it looks like those Atlas Warren Trusses have finally become prototypical!

Obviously the old bridge had some clearance issues for double stacks.

These pics were sent to me by a friend in Germany. The line is in Austria and the crane is a Liehberr LR1750. I'm kinda surprized that they are not going to ease the curvature in the alignment on the approach to the bridge.

It could be a temporary bridge... they did that here in Winnipeg when they expanded the floodway. They built a shoe-fly with concrete piers and abutments, then replaced the original bridge and removed the temp...
