I was just going over the Feather River Canyon layout thread by @rodsup9000 and noticed that the trestle bents and the Warren deck truss are the same as the Jaso.  I am really missing my computer cuz these bents would be done already!!  :(

I have already made some hand drawings John to make sure the Jaso bents (which are 40ft) will be 100% compatible with an ME bent at the top. The difference will be the elevation (spacing) of the horizontal members to give a different look to the bent so I could make ME replacements as well as taller ones. The footprint will be slightly different as well. I don't know if I'd go as tall as Jaso to be sold, but I will make some for myself.  After three weeks of waiting, at least the motherboard for my new computer arrived and I can start building it. I'm sick of not being able to be productive.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Bob's not screwing around!  That graphic card setup looks really wild!  And he will be wasting all that power on designing stuff instead of playing games.  :trollface:

Thanks for posting this picture.  There was a similar bridge that carried US 6 over the DRGW mainline as it climbs up to Soldier Summit from Helper.  It is very difficult to find a clear picture of it but I want to model a version of it. This helps me to get a better idea with the bridge piers.

Really nice bridge! definitely WOW factor. The ultimate WOW factor for me would be the Quebec Bridge over the St Lawrence River.
