More Bridge work I was able to get a little more work done on the bridge over the Little River. I am trying to recreate this style of bridge. After much thought I decided to paint the steel structure black as all the prototype pictures I could fine showed the steel members were black. I also decided to lightly weather the bridge as it was in the late 1920's about 20 years after it was constructed. I positioned the two 40 foot spans over Nelson's Gap on the Little River using a very temporary center pier and temporary attachments at both ends. I was thrilled It was strong enough to hold the first train over the chasm. I think this picture looks a little like the prototype one above. Next step as the weather warms is to build a concrete or concrete like pier similar to those above in the prototype. Ideas and comments are welcomed as the Little River RR advances a few more feet. Thanks for looking. Doc Tom Doc Tom and the Little River RR guys in East Tennessee.
