First thing I did when I started my trestle was to buy a template. Not sure if Black Bear hobby is still open but it made things much easier. I used redwood fence slats cut down to size and other than small repairs. I live in southern Arizona so UV is a major factor, but larger pieces, bents, are still standing.
Have fun Mine is a bit over 100' long with 14" rise. don't rush :)

I started my trestle with Titebond 2 then switched over to TiteBond 3. I generally use 23 gauge pin nails on the bents.
