    Well Chris, here's a BIG railway bridge :eek: :eek: :) .
    It's the unique Forth Bridge over the estuary of the river Forth in Scotland (18 miles from me).
    It was the first railway bridge top be constructed using steel. As it's built over salt water the steel was to Royal Navy warship specifications.
    It would be a brave craftsman who would try to model this in any scale.

    Forth Bridge Model

    I know a fellow who has a model of the Forth Bridge on his G-gauge backyard layout. Except he only has 2 segments of it -- we haven't told him it's really the Quebec bridge.
    (he's now out of G and into O -- sold all the G except the bridge -- noone has a truck big enough to haul it away!)
    Chris: need a shot of the DVP nothbound -- you know, the one on the news every night. :p
