Ties accept Code 70 or 83 rail, easily modified for Code 100 rail. The bridge is a design by the N. Y. Bridge Company. Spectacular model with detail that here-to-fore was attainable by only a handful of master craftsmen for use as contest models or museum displays! In only a few hours, any modeler can now construct a steel bridge model that surpasses any model of similar structures in the past!
Modifications in bracing, rail, guard-rails, walkways and railings, telegraph arms attached, and different portals are common. The bridge kit components are ideal for kit bashing and the scratch building of other bridges and steel structures. They are most often painted black, but there are examples of silver, gray, red oxide and green that I have seen. The model as built from the plans spans 21 inches. It is approximately 4 3/8 inches high and 2 7/8 inches wide. From rail-head to bottom of shoe is approximately 15/16 inches. The parts are injection molded of an impact grade of styrene plastic that is the same as used in the popular automobile and military hobby kits. Cementing and painting requires the same materials and techniques in common use in the construction of those kits and the most popular model railroad kits.
