This is how it currently looks…I have no idea who this photo credit goes too but it’s not mine.(the little girl is laughing as I told her I was gonna build this in 1/24 scale).
I decided to build 1/2 of the span for my RR. I didn’t want concrete (too much weight) nor did I want foam as it must support the track as well so I thought I would try something different. After all this hobby does rely on a bit of scratchbuilding and engineering? I had some recyclable Tuf Board laying around that I tore up when I reconfigured my line so I decided to re-use it. The above picture shows the inner ladder style frame that will support the 5/4 board already on the line. The end pieces are made from Weyerhauser (Choice Deck) balustrade, had some of that in my scrap pile as well.
I had to purchase 1x10 Tuf Board for the front fascia and actually the left over Tuf board will only be enough to make the inner frame. The rest must be purchased. However the materials purchased to make a 6’ span so far have cost a little under $100 so I’m figuring that the 12’ span will cost about $200. I am aware that Garden Metal Models is configuring a viaduct system for release but those pictures seem to be only a single track and I need a double? Besides will I be able to span a 12’ viaduct for around $200 so I’m happy.
Thank you again to the graphics shop next door and their scrap.
