    Thanks once again to Shamus for naming the creek on my layout "Badger Creek"
    I built the trestle out of pine strips I cut with my band saw.
    It is held together with white glue.

    Hi Robin,

    Boy thats a beautiful bridge to say the very least. I sure bet your proud of it as you should be. How long did it take you to build it? Keep up the great work. Ron

    One thing I do know is that Robin cut almost all his own wood strips.

    Robin, that looks fantastic! You've honored the Badger Crick name with it! I hope I should do half as well!


    Hey, that's a great excuse, 6, "Where's your big scratch built tressle, Jon?" "Still waiting for that tree to grow!"

    :D :D :D
