....I wouldn't be asking if anyone here has the length (inches) of the old Atlas stone viaduct? Or where to find that?

Arches are 2-5/32" center-to-center and 3'1/4" high. Arch assembly without piers is 1" high.

Thanks ... but this does point out the drawbacks of only being able to get RR models through the mail. You can't look at them to get the size and you really can't see at once what the whole thing looks like. When looking for structures and such to fit  specific places we have on our layouts that is a big handicap to not having local hobby shops. Maybe when they have holographic internet ...

Yes, a number of sites had dimensions...and tons of pics.   In this case no super-hi-rez versions but plenty of large photos of both the item itself and some installations on layouts.
