Does anyone know a tutorial or can tell me how to make a relalistic E-Z Track Bridge?
I like Komodo's better. Scratch build. I have another question. Can I use atlas... And all the other plane track along with e-z track at once?
You got a lot of good replies, but I'm going to choose to be a "NIT-PICKER"Does anyone know a tutorial or can tell me how to make a relalistic E-Z Track Bridge?
Hi Reckers,I'm curious---why would anyone ballast a bridge? I realize some might do it on a model railroad for aesthetic purposes, but what other purpose could it serve?
Dave, thanks for sharing that. I suppose the ballast could keep conventional ties from creeping out of place: I hadn't considered that factor. As for the old trestles, it's pretty amazing they didn't fall over---I doubt their builders had any inkling of what would eventually cross them.
Tacoma Narrows, WA ... circa 1940. Horrible design ... doomed from the start. They didn't consider wind-generated harmonic oscillation.YEAH!! Big Ed,
Quite often I think. And not just the railroad bridges. I don't remember where it was located but it was called Galloping Gerty I think!! A big suspension bridge.
