the el is o gague it is made with atlas ho bridges , about 60 of them ,i think they look great and realistic . the upright beams are plastruct truss . total cost about 550.00 . the brass el cost more because of the machines i bought shear 900.00 break 400.00 brass coil 65.00 to make 20 iches , but now the rest will be a lot cheaper its going to be a long winter

Robert:
Fine modeling, I see you correctly used straight truss and plate girder members with the track curved on top. Too many modelers incorrectly use curved bridge members which would collapse in the real world.

35feet long , i also made 20 inches of a brass el that looks fantastic but it took to many hours because of the rivit detail
