       Not as fancy as others but it spans ten feet in length (with no support) and gets the job done.

      Man some nice bridges. Makes my humble little Howe truss lift bridge look ugly.

      starting with the oldies --- I always liked covered bridges, this one in HO scale from teen age me made of balsa wood for carriages.

      the very first structure i built for the garden was a covered bridge.  first set up on blocks of wood on the lawn with a little loop of track...also on blocks.  it lasted in service for about 20 years and 3 garden railways when I outgrew it.

      I built two more to suit 1:20 scale then two more for 7/8" scale...

      load testing the truss.

      outside in the snow the first year.
