    As my new railroad matures, and I get more comfortable with the hobby, I want to have some bridges and or Trestles. Can any of you suggest your favorite bridge/trestle that you have used or can recommend? I would love to do something like what is shown on the front of the new Walthers Catalog.

    Here's a link to a thread that I started, then later highjacked with some off-topic replies. In my opinion, the reason for starting the post remains valid and is worth checking out. After you've done that, scroll through the three pages that make up the thread, as there are a few bridge pictures there that you might find interesting.

    Check it out!!!

    Check out some of the bridges from Central Valley. There are some nice bridges and the kits are a step up from shake-the-box type of kits.

    Micro Engineering makes some nice bridges, viaducts and trestles, in both HO and N scale. I have the 50' ballsted deck bridge and really like it. It was easy to assemble and paint.
    Here's a pic of it with my "retro" piant C44-9W riding over it.
