    Here's a pic of my first scratch-built, a multi-span plate girder bridge. I guess I cheated a little in that I used store-bought plate girder side sections. The trusses are coffee stirrers (thanks Starbucks), stained and weathered, and the foundations are carved, painted styrofoam. The bridge splits on one end to include most of a turnout.

    Neat bridge with the "Y" at one end. Nice work.
