    Welcome to the weekly installment of my fav thread! Been a while since I had a theme MPOTW, so here goes.
    This week's theme? Bridges.

    RBeyer caught a BNSF stacker detouring on Keith Schaber's UP Blue Mountains Sub:

    John Warren's bridge carries both road and rail over this large chasm:

    I like the theme, and you picked a great line-up.

    Mikelhh's shot had me wondering if you slipped in a prototype shot by mistake. The scenery work is impressive (as always), but the car on the bridge caused me to pause and wonder for a few seconds.

    I also like Pete's shot. The scenery is great, but the composition and lighting is also very well done.

    Absolutely beautiful scenes.:thumbs_up:

    I had the same reaction as Bruce with mikelhh's shot. I saw the Chevy on top of the bridge and it seemed just a tad too realistic...:plaugh:

    Thanks Hemi, Bruce and Mike.

    I agree - Pete's scene is a stunner [looks great at full size] and there's particularly beautiful rock work in all the others :thumbs_up:

    Wow, love all the bridges, especially the Bakery Local in full size. The only thing that gives it away is the lack of a driver in the VW...maybe I can't see the little old lady looking through the spokes of the steering wheel.

    Cheers Paul

    It was purchased through Structures and Trains By Fred - they stock a few road vehicles.
