Hello Gents,

Might I inquire as to where one might look for
perhaps on the market, if you will, for fencing and
the like for our large scale trains for bridge's and
their edges / etc et all?

THANK YOU!

Artisan...

NTCGRR,
Thanx for the reply! I sure would like to see close up pics of your railings
and yes, a poor choice of words I used, (fences) excuse me. I am looking pretty hard at
these devices for G, thinking about them in BRASS, S.S. and raw Steel for quick
weathering maybe. Perhaps a double horz rail set up w/ a 10-32 drop to attach and
a myraid of .125 materials strung between them. I have not seen anything
"Contemporary" I like yet so I guess I better make a few thousand of them
ehh? /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/unsure.gif I have CAD drawings for several styles, I just need ot pull the trigger
and get sumthang...

Lookin' good there Torby! Tell me, did you make those railings or
were they store bought? I assume they fasten to the ends of the
bridge Cross Member Beams? Those look nice, if you dig up any detailed
pictures I would be much abliged...

Those are the GMM cat walks. i make all my bridges and design them so I can use the GMM walks to finish it off. they are worth the $$. 8" inside clearance.
there is around 20 some types of bridges on the RR.
thanks Tom for the photos.

Those Catwalks look nice, they are plastic ties I do believe I read yes?

Ya think an all wood (crossbars) and Aluminum (Stringers) set up similar but much more substancial w/ Brass,
SS, or Raw Metal Railing posts and .125 Rod (any flavor) for rails would work good too? :D

I'm with Marty,those GMM units are great. Mine have been out in the weather for a few years and I'm sure Marty has some that have been outside for a long time. I know I could not make anything that would match the detail. Ckeck out their website.
