    This is my first successful bridge building attempts. I found a good bridge photo website for reference, and improvised the rest. N scale

    That looks great, even more because it is n scale. Great job :thumb: . Could you please post the link of this bridge photo website. That sounds interesting.

    If it were HO, I'd say it looks awesome, but in N, WOW!

    Oh, I love bridges. And this looks awesome. I had made a girder bridge in S-scale couple of years back, will post pics of those soon.

    I'm curious about this (Yellow arrow in the pic)? Is that a ready made piece or did you make it?

    bridge parts

    A while ago I bought a clear bag of bridge parts. It had a yellow label (I think it was micro-engineering, I'm not sure). It was HO. I just was digging though my spare parts bin and found some pieces.

    Nice job. I think it looks good also because its not a whole bridge. I think it gives me some more ideas for making more modern bridges.

    First of all, I'll say what everyone else has said:
    GREAT JOB!!!!:thumb: :thumb: I can't work in HO let-alone N

    Secondly...I'm doing a MicroEngineering viaduct and those definitely look like the pieces for their bridge kits

    Micro Engineering makes the viaduct parts; Central valley makes the parts you are talking about-the girder assemblies.
    Incidentally; there are several good books on bridge building; one in particular, is by Paul Mallery, and concerns itself more with the theory behind what you would do and why than any of the others I think.
    I will try to send some pics of what I have done.
