I know, but I have spring fever, why wait till summer to work on the RR.
Last few years I had the Garden metal Models piers in use on the Highline. But I have always wanted steel supports. I don't think they will be coming out with them soon. SO!!!


I cut a 35" piece into 3rds and am building the steel supports for them.
which will make the bridge 15ft long.


My welding is not that great but its fun and strong!!!!HHHHEEEEE

I wish I had a different location and a longer deeper place to install it.
Besides, if Dan From Eagle Wing would come out with sets of these that fit 12" bridge units , He could sale a bunch.

The kind that has a wire coming out of its hand like pointy thingy, but no gas. it gets hot..
Over the last couple years ,the weather has been hard on this area.


And I have not liked the looks of this retainer wall that gets into photos every so often.


So after it dries out before the rainy season I want to build a block retainer wall then cover it with rocks as below.

this area has been in for over 7 years and NO,,(0) problems.

I like the standing the stones up look in photos and the concrete behind supports it.

Who makes the plate girders (I think that's what you call the "sides" of the bridge) you're using?

The inicials are GMM which I think is Garden Metal Models. You can find them in Garden Railways Magazine.

Marty, double check your settings on your anti-virus/firewall. This happened to me last month when my CA software updated itself and changed some of the settings! - the full edit screen didn't work, only quick reply...

I looked and ran a fun scan last night. My wife may try to look it over tonight.

woow even edit.

Heres the 1/3s added

I moved the support shoes over about 1/4" onto the center beam to keep them even. It was the simplest way.

WOOW five months later I can finish this thread.
I guess I went the wrong way around the RR reworking the landscaping.

Last shot will be a train on it.
I love this product, WELL worth the money...
