Most of the bridge was made from Walthers concrete road systems. The sides were made from some other mfg. side walks turned over. The track sits on 3/8 inch plywood you can't see and go into a series of bridges I'll upload a photo.

Great pics and GREAT idea for it. I may have to "learn" from that, as I have quite a few to build myself.
