Product Description

This is an HO model of one of the various large cantilever signal bridges used by the C&O.  These were common thrughout the old C&O system until very recently.  I believe the last ones were replaced in 2015.  They had positions for 5 signal mastsif you count the potential for signals facing in both directions.  The dimensions for this model are changed slightly for 2" track centers, typical in HO scale to accomidate our oversized fingers, but a bit wider than the prototype.

 

There are some minor details missing on this model, specifically the nut and bolt detail where the tower and bridge were field assembled, and the visible portion of the anchor bolts that held the tower to the concrete base.  A second version of this tower will be available in Extreme Detail that includes these details, but will have separate tower and bridge components hat will require assembly.

 

You have to order the walkway as a seperately as the two files together exceed the upload limit.  Handrails and ladders are too fradgile to print and will have to be constructed with the usual modeling techniques.
