Bridge Extention

Post by gbtrains »

HI T Gauge people

Hope you are all well and keeping safe.

I will be starting a 1200mm by 400mm extention for a couple of layouts to be joined in between and so I have decided this should a double bridge over a deep river which then I can place boats and ships on.

PS This will be a double track so that you can run two trains at the same time accorss the bridge.

Bridge total lenght will be 900mm in lenght.

Please pics for design of project. :D

With Thanks
Graham

Update to Bridge

I am now prined the second part to the span and will start construction on this once I get my 1200mm by 400mm Laser cut board.
Pritning each span takes around 14 hours.
Now built on 3D model of both end gables which the bridge will tie to the ends.

see pic for details :D

regards
Graham
