I am finally getting around to building my curved bridge. I originally was going to make it a wood trestle, but since it’s double-tracked I didn’t like the looks of it. So I studied every type of railroad bridge that I could. I wanted it to be a Midwestern bridge that was actually double-tracked and curved. The Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge met all my requirements.
I am making a frame out of 1/8″ Masonite and then will be covering it with 1/4″ foam.
Here are the first pieces of foam that I have carved. Next step will be to paint them.
Completed placing the Strathmore board under the arches.
