Abandoned my 3rd bridge project

ABANDONED my 3rd bridge project is almost completed. The wooden bridge was abandoned by the RR for a better route and stronger steel viaduct. A friend of mine said, on his train trip across the US he seen lots of these abandon bridges.

Nice!! Now, weather the bejaysus out of it, and even have some of the diagonal sway braces unpinned and kept up only by one set of bolts.

Not to be the grammar police, but a comma in the title makes the difference between giving up on a project, or the name of the project.

I too thought you had abandoned your project before opening the thread.

Thanks John. The 2nd part of the abandon bridge project. A fire broke out in the grasslands next to the RR tracks near the steel viaduct. The Janesville fire department quickly extinguished it. I installed very small LEDS in the light bar and ditch lights of the fire truck. Their only the size of a pencil point but are very bright.

I also thought you had given up in frustration. Glad to see I was mistaken! Very nice work.
