O scale bridge

Hi to all O scale modelers!!!

I looked through quite a few of the old threads but couldn't find one called whats on your O scale workbench!!! So here I go with whats on mine!

Eventually it's going to be an O scale Deck Truss bridge about 26 inches long with stone type abutments and a couple of trestles under it for support.
IS ANYONE GETTING INTERESTED YET???

I still have a long way to go yet. Going to add those nut & bolt castings to it also. here's the photo.
Cheers, Dave

You tempt me with a truss so I will add this link of the Vermont Covered bridge museum. Maybe it will inspire.
I also am adding this image search of truss covered bridges. Some fancy work here.

Mike, it's really not that hard to post pictures, and we even have a post describing several techniques.

Hello TJ, I could have bet all I have that you would have been the first to respond to my thread!!! smiles

Big Mike, Hi there!! Yes it is glued together and I would think it would support O scale engines. I suspect the heaviest would be an all brass Big Boy engine. maybe someone knows the actual weight of one.
gunrunnerjohn explained about downloading photo's so follow his lead

Hi T-Man I was wanting to tempt someone with this bridge because when it's finished it will be put up For Sale Since it what I do
Thanks for the covered bridge links!! I have build 3 already

Mike if you have a photo on Photobucket, it's DIRT SIMPLE!

With the Photobucket page open, run your cursor over the picture you want to post, the popup illustrated below will appear. Just click on the indicated entry, then switch to your message composition window here and paste it with a Ctrl-V and you're done. Couldn't be simpler.



Using this example, I clicked on the indicated link, then pasted that result here, this is what you see.
