In the foreground of the scene on the Wesso section where the WP tracks are crossing a dry creek I want to use a wood trestle. It will not have to be very tall and will need to curve to match the 18 inch radius of the track. Also, I want to make it a ballasted deck.
Bar Mills Models Low Boy Trestle. I had two of them on the California Northwestern layout. The box shown in the photo was holding left over parts from the old layout, it now comes in a bag.
These are great kits right out of the box with options to build it as a straight or curved trestle. For this project I am using almost all of the parts plus some left over from before. I am also using some strip wood that I had on hand. The deck is made from .020 stryene sheet with a pair of curved .125 brass tubes bonded to the center to give it some extra support.
