Item #12834

Bridges are key elements of model railroad scenes! Understanding
how real railroads use them, and how they've evolved, is
important to realistically modeling them.

The Model Railroader's Guide to Bridges and Trestles covers the
history of various types of bridges, shows how they evolved in
design and size, and explains how railroads choose the
appropriate type of bridge to fit each situation.

Description

The Model Railroader's Guide to Bridges & Trestles is your
one-stop source for information on real bridges. This book will
guide you through the history of the various bridge types from
the first days of railroading through today, showing older bridge


types still in use, older bridge types that are now obsolete,
and new concrete and steel designs.

This all-new book includes:

The history of various types of bridges.
How bridges have evolved in design and size.
How bridges fit in with other related scenic elements.
Many bridge types: Wood trestles, stone and concrete arches,
culverts, wood and steel truss bridges, steel plate-girder
bridges, and cantilevers.

Information to help modelers choose appropriate bridges for the
region, era, and type of railroad they model.
