    Isn't that a plate girder section in the center?

    This would make a nice model.

    Funny but I don't remember this trestle even though I spent a year there flight training at the RCAF base there, but then my interests were airplanes first and girls second in those days.

    More like a bay bridge, eastern span type, looking at a corner of my area, and thinking of capalizing it as a brideg over water area, instead of detailing it. This in effect gives me the ability to place a 4' long bridge across the gap.

    Something similar to this:

    Just the canilevered section left side of mimage to the first truss grider section.

    This bridge is a double decked 6 lane highway on top, and the bottom was a 3 lane highway and 2 lane rail. it was later expanded to a full 8 lanes on top and 6 lanes on bottom with 2 rail. But this may be to much, so i might just do a 2 lane rail and 4 lane road on one deck but in same style.

    Original cross section:

    the bottom is the tunnel on the island that connects the east and west spans.

    Hey Robin,

    As it turns out, I was on my way to do a puppet show at 15-Wing air base and this bridge is right along the way about 2 kms from the base.

    How about that? ;)
