The total length of this plate girder and truss bridge system is 135" in length and the track located about 10" in elevation. The H piers are made of wood and are clad with a wall made by Noch.

This is the area before a major renovation took place in this corner of the layout. The renovation included removing all of the old track, road bed, wiring, plywood and supporting structure. New support structure was built and then inserted into place and tied in with previous renovation work. New plywood was installed and painted. Then some track leading into this renovated area was removed along with the road bed and wiring. New road bed was laid down and new track and wiring was install for the approach to the new bridge on both sides. Final adjustements for the actual location of the Truss bridges and plate girders where determined as well as final elevation. Painting and assembly of the Truss/plate system was then concluded and installation was finialized. Track(Ross) was install thru the bridges/plate girders and tied in to the approaches on both sides. Wiring complete the job.

Both of these locations look terrific. In the first series, how did you make the concrete supports, and the bricks? Nice work...
