It's been awhile since adding any photos...

This bridge is in HO scale - using an N gauge Atlas railroad bridge as a starting point. I just used the sides. It saved lots of work. I was only about an inch wide but now its 4 inches wide. Everything was built with Evergreen styrene shapes -- once I cut the sides out from the Atlas bridge. Nothing seemed suitable from any of the usual kit suppliers.

That's some nice modeling. I have used some out of scale items for an HO scale project, but this hit the ball out of the park. Well done.

Thanks Chet. My firstHO-scale "out-of-scale" use was using N scale cows grazing on a hill- behind-the hill scene to create more 'depth'.
