Very nicely done.  I, too would suggest the stringers on the bottom to support the track.  Wonderfully done.

I agree with Stan   I used stringers.   I made them from    3/4 inch wide by 1/8 thick  flat steel.   It came in  10 ft lengths.    I  welded them in place.

N>S. To use a a "C" channel would be like putting a girder bridge through a truss bridge. IMHO it would detract from the beauty of the truss.
You did a great job on the bridge.


I remember a  few years back that someone posted a picture on MLS of a  1:1 rail road bridge that looked exactly like  what you discribe.   And I think  it was Marty.  I could be wrong.
