    While replacing a bridge on my railroad, I decided to use the oppurtunity to have a little photo fun. I made the new bridge out of a pair of Atlas plate girder bridges. I cut the side panels off and reattached them below the deck. I also narrowed the bridge about 1/2 an inch.

    Moral- Inspect those bridges before it's too late!
