    If you want to do a one turn prototype helix you could model Tehachapie with the loop at one end of the layout. I think the only bridge would be the one at the top of the loop where the train goeas over itself, but it would have lots of mountains. You would probably not have a full 12 inches between levels at the loop itslef, but with a grade coming up to the loop and another one going up from the loop you could get a 12 inch separation a little bit away from the loop.
