    Let's see some bridges!

    New photos are highly encouraged. One photo per member.

    "Times up" will be posted next Monday so don't wait until the last minute. After the times up I'll post the poll for everyone on TrainBoard to choose their favorite image.

    Best of luck!

    I am preparing to go on a drive to visit a daughter the next province over, so I can't get a new photo to submit....sowwy. Here is the best recent photo I have with a bridge, an Atlas Warren Truss. This is not photo-shopped, but is a diorama, HO scale, with the background trees and mountains, sky, etc, being live and in 3-D illuminated by the morning sun. I think all I did was crop, maybe a bit of sharpening.

    This is "Santa Fe under the Comox Glacier

    Nice entry Crandell. I've always liked that shot.

    Mine needed a little help with an added backdrop, but everything in the foreground is mine.

    Just so happened that I took a new bridge photo to assist a member with a bridge question. Might as well enter it in the bridge challenge! :D

    Wow, that's Z-scale? :thumbs_up::thumbs_up:

    Here's my entry. I guess it qualifies. It started out as a bridge (two, to be exact) and now it's a float bridge.

    I like it. Actually you may want to add a sloped front and back and some sides and really make it a barge. Jim

    Thanks. :) I still need to make the pontoon for the front (car float) end, and add the apron and large hinges on the land end. This is just a test fit for some measurements.
