    Hi, check this German wiki page:
    https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gusseisenbrücke_in_Laasan

    Since you might have to brush off your mastery of the German language, this is what I make out of it in terms of measurements:
    Length 12,55 meters
    Width 5,7 meters
    Height 2,8 meters
    I could 6 tons in weight
    The river it bridged was 9 meters wide.


    Cheers,
    Matt

    It looks very nice, could easily be fitted in many a layout.

    Next: Ironbridge, UK? Kevin would probably fit it in his next UK layout :)

    I visited the UK two years ago and walked this bridge, amazing early industrial revolution accomplishment. It was the very first and an example for the German version you've now modelled.

    The bridge connects two sides of a narrow rivervalley, with beautiful surroundings. How spectacular must it have been to the 18th century folk!

    ...sorry Pawel, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Back to the Polish route...

    The only problem is the handrails they would have to be Laser cut metal for this bridge! It's a very interesting bridge like the design might try to do this one to! Last post on this site on bridges waiting for some new great modules shots! Zdrada69! always enjoy seeing your work!!!!!!

    Hi Pawel, very nice bridge and cool cobblestones (but horror for car axles...) (y)(y)(y)
    Where I could get these cobblestones? My father is building a german branchline prior WWII in z scale and has some streets there...

    Those gipsum products are made by Hugwa: http://hugwa.pl/HOME.html
    Z-scale shop items are here: https://sklep.hugwa.pl/pl/c/1220-Z/21
    It looks that cobblestones are not in the shop but I can ask for it (I belive my were "test edition") or you can write directly to Hugwa in German.

    I like using the woodland scenic water. I put it in layers of 1/8in. let dry then added this way till I got the depth I wanted. It flows well and sets up clear I layered this pond in 2007 and here is what it looks like now! I just wished I used a darker blue for the deeper water. it doesn't harden and can be wiped down before doing photo to remove dust and make the top look glossy!

    I decided not to destroy what was already done. There will be a swamp with bushes instead of the creek. I will try to check another products on the next project.

    I started to work on the other side of this module as well.

    I think the bushes and trees are practically finished. It is time to start to add some human presence...

    That's very nicely done scenery on your end module, lots of layers of different materials give a really natural look.
