Holy Smacks! John that bridge is drop-dead gorgeous!

Please, if you haven't already, post a separate topic about it in the Great Bridges of O Gauge category.

We really must see more of it!

John,
The photos of your barn and bridge supports show up bigger for me here than I saw when you posted on OGR Forum. The barn is good. I think I will be doing something similar for buildings when I get to build my next layout. 20 years without a real layout has been a drag!

Now on to your bridge supports. I read how you made your retaining wall on OGR Forum, but I can better see the detail of the bridge supports here. They look very good, and another low cost way of getting the job done. While I have enough trains to run, I will be having to purchase lumber and track. I can do some shopping around, but I hope to be very cost conscious when it comes to my scenery.

Thank you for sharing.

John Boy,
Yes I saw Rod Stewart's bridge in a recent Model Railroader. Rod is a fantastic modeler, although he doesn't have the cost restraints we do. More power to him!

In reading about Rod Stewart he carries with him his building supplies and after shows winds down by working on trains. then when the stuff is finished it goes in a trunk to go back to be put on the layout. I enjoy making things ( cheaply) with 5 kids and a granddaughter you have to. I spend enough as it is but having things custom made and buying everything can get real costly. my layout will never be like Rod's or some of the others that look just flawless but if it makes me happy that's what counts and if I can help people along the way better yet
