As we did last summer, I will once again run a series of 'half-month' themes from June through August. Some of the themes will focus on structures, some on scenery, and some on rolling stock. Heck, I might even though in a 'mood' theme as well. So stay tuned - there is bound to be something of interest to everyone on the Forum!

So, the theme for the first half of June 2010 will the "Bridges and Trestles". Any photos, either model or prototype, depicting a bridge or trestle is welcome. Remember, this theme will only run thru June 15th.

For those who like to plan ahead, and perhaps snap a few new pictures in advance, the theme for "Late June" will be devoted to pictures of freight car loads and/or freight cars being loaded/unloaded.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Here is one of the Late Paul Templar's (Shamus) many scratchbuild trestles. This was a work in progress shot from his On30 "Fun & Fanciful Railroad". One of the last railroads built by him.

Wow. That second Pennsy photo has a real prototype feel about it.

I have a small trestle that goes over a swamp near Pinconning MI, however, I don't think I've taken too many pics of it. I took these today, JUST for the thread.

A bascule bridge over Shark River Inlet. It's on the division of NJ Transit Rail called the North Jersey Coast Line--

This picture was taken circa 2001.
The grey lift bridge immediately to the west of the bascule carried Rt. 35 across the inlet.

A couple of years later the Rt. 35 lift bridge was removed and replaced with this high span--
