As we have done with some summer months in the past, I have decided to split July in half with two different themes that I feel might attract fewer than 'normal' photo posts.

So, for the first half of July, the theme is "Bridges and Tunnels", which is pretty self-explanatory.

Either prototype or model photos are welcome.

On July 16th, I will close this Gallery and open a new one for the remainder of the month.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

Ed, Bernie is a terrific modeler.

Here is a bridge/tunnel combo from Bob Hamm's impressive HOn3 layout.

Here are a few views of the East Shoreham, VT covered bridge on the Addison Branch of the Rutland RR. The two prototype photos are by John Gardner. The model is a highly modified Branchline Laser Art Shoreham Bridge kit that I built for the NEB&W.

This John Gardner photo provided the inspiration for adding the Addison Branch to the club layout


The modified kit (but back side of bridge view)

For a size comparison the trestle is 15' long and 28" high (Fn3).

Just a side note:
The trestle is part of a modular layout, the Sundance Central. There are 3 modules that make up this trestle. There is an outside curve on the left and an inside curve on the right with a straight section in the middle. Each bent is removable; the stringers are glued together and are removable as a long section. The track, ties and stringers are one piece that sits on top of the bents and locks them in place. the steel bridges lift off separately. There is one section for the left side and one section for the right. The mountain section in the back is also removable and is mounted on casters for easy portability. All the trees, figures and vehicles are also removable.

We’ve displayed the Sundance Central in Tampa, FL; Perry, GA; Portland, ME; Portland, OR; Los Angeles, CA; Hickory, NC and Kansas City, KS. The entire module railroad fills an entire 53’ semi-trailer and takes 15-18 hours to set-up and 5 hours to take down.

The time and patience required to build these bridges is mind blowing. Well done.
