    No, that's an Atlas through girder bridge that I cut the floor out of, then used some styrene to make an interior framework. I used Micro Engineering bridge tie strips to finish it off. The bridge is five spans in total .
    Here's the same end of the bridge, looking the opposite way as the first photo: from the bank, modified Atlas through girder, Central Valley Pratt truss,

    then another modified Atlas girder, followed by a Micro Engineering 50' deck girder,
    [​IMG]

    and ending with a Micro Engineering 30' deck girder, which is barely visible among the bushes. (the loco is on the 50' ME girder shown in the previous picture)

    Les, did you make sure that you got the entire IMG line? As you move the cursor to the right, the line of data will scroll to the left: if you miss even one character, the image won't show.

    EDIT: I just wanted to make sure that the image will show even if you don't enlarge the thumbnail before copying the IMG line. Obviously, it does. :rolleyes::-D

    Les,

    I took the liberty of fixing your original attempt (above Wayne's advice - post #70). The problem was extra "IMG" and "http://" text at places that made the html code nonsensical, so to speak.

    However, I see you have figured it out, so I guess I was kinda redundant... ;) hamr

    Oh well... Nice pic though! :thumb:

    GN.2-6-8-0 --Awesome pic of that C&O engine on the bridge, but its definitely a Texas type 2-10-4, not a Berkshire. C&O called their 2-8-4s Kanawhas. :mrgreen:
    (just an observation)
