I'm wondering if you can really consider yourself a model Railroader if you've never built a wood trestle...

What if you model a road that never had a wood trestle?

A shortline?

While doing research I found wood trestles were used absolutely everywhere pre 1960s when it comes to ditch crossing.

If you were doing the Pennsy mainline you'd be out of luck after the beginning of the 20th century.

Most lines were built with trestles and then slowly filled in over the years.

Finished some subterranean infrastructure and fixed the location of the trestle at Old Town, so I was finally able to install the last bit of riverbed.


This will lead to more rock castings and scenery, and a fun project to build a canal lock.

Me too even though my digitally enabled and much younger work colleagues told me  many times to keep the home button on the right side to stop that. It was quite a while before I could swallow my embarrassment/pride/stubbornness  and ask “ok then, wtf is a home button?”

Just about all of my photos are now taken with my phone. But I transfer them to my computer to crop and re-size before posting.
