Meh...




Not questioning anybody or any manufacturer, but is that legit on two axle trucks?  Two M1A2 weigh about 128+ tons.

I got all the stiffeners on the multi depth deck plate, next is to make the last abutment that will go to the far right. Then finish adding rivets then paint and weather the bridges and abutments. I got a box of super trees so will be working on those eventually, once I create the swamp in the foreground and add static grass and underbrush everywhere. Finally got all the track and wiring done. More next week.

Nice Parker truss, who makes that bridge? Or is it scratchbuilt?

Thanks, it's scratchbuilt, it's a model of a truss bridge that was on a single track line that was a joint effort between the Pennsy and NYC. They removed the bridge before I could measure it so I went by photos and measurements of the abutments that they left standing. I used styrene and gold medal models w and x bracing for the web members. It's almost done, still need to add lacing to the bottoms of the main chords and few other details then finally paint and weather it.

Another project, a modified MTL 60' Hy cube, I basically did all the modifications Scott Lupia did in his N scale railroading article. I did add .02" x .03" strip at the stirrup locations to add additional depth to the box, then .02"x.04" strip to the sill. I'm doing several of these next is a Milwaukee Road one.
