This is the nickle tour of my layout and a brief peek at how I made my bridges. It should provide better construction detail to view. My previous video has a…

    Try George’s trains in Toronto if you can’t find a more local place. They have a website you can visit called georgestrain… My brother and I had a set decades ago and we went there and they had tons of Cdn N stock.

    Zaid – track is by Micro Engineering, trains a mix of Kato & Atlas and a variety of hopper brands. The original builder of this layout has sold it, and Thompson River Canyon is now part of a larger layout.

    That big almost-white cliff is NOT a matter of using too little colour! They ARE that bright on the Thompson, and in the summer that valley can be just scorching in the reflected heat.

    I’m an O-scale trian runner, but I like them all very nicely done.

    Get a few model railroad magazines and you’ll find ads for Canadian locomotives and rolling stock. This, BTW, is a beautiful layout, featured in several modeling magazines.

    do u have any videos on making the mountains on this layout I see at 3:18 those mountains are sweet wish you could make a video if you dont have one skills like that should be shared ..

    Sound is dubbed & synchronised from real trains, it’s not coming from decoders.


  18. TLSMatt

    Awesome layout and scenery, deff BC , love it. How did the great sound get generated? Just through decoders? Even can hear the wheels go over the rail-joints etc.Would be great to find outhow it was done.!!!
    Thanks

    This is extra cool knowing the area it’s based on. Incredible part of BC railroads.

    Good Grief -
    I have stopped the video at 5:00 to make a comment(s).
    I thought it was a plastic, per-made bridge when I started the video.
    So this is a hand-fitted, 5 foot long, balsa bridge.?
    YOU did a great job my man.?
    Very impressive.
    carry on…..

    About this much |__________________| :). What I had to do was come up with the design. Then I printed it out full size. Then I looked at some off-the-shelf bridge kits to determine what I needed based on what made them. I have a small pile of balsa left over of various sizes. Be sure to include a generous amount for waste and experimentation.


  29. Kenny Klosterman

    The bridge is awsome! I need to build one about 4 ft. long. How much balsa wood did you use?

    Wonderful video and with explanations and clear on the subject proposed, details of a bridge in Model Railroad. Congratulations.

    Cantilever would have a center support, it looks like an arch truss. Im a future civil engineer at 15, Im currently working on making a 3’6″ long full vertical lift bridge. it will have 4′ masts and will be made transportable because its for a modular layout.

    Thanks for your input. :) Frankly, What I don’t know about engineering would fill an encyclopedia.

    Scale means scale. In times past manufacturers sometimes used to build their model carriages shorter than scale length to make them work better on tight curves, but these days most manufacturers keep pretty close to scale dimensions.
    British OO scale is scaled slightly larger than HO, being 1:76.2 or 4mm/1 foot.


  42. JBofBrisbane

    Not a cantilever, actually a truss span (not sure which type).

    I need to duplicate this bridge to span a doorway leading into my hallway at my house. Can you eMail me so we can discuss your building teniques and tips and tricks on building this bridge? Awesome.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the kind words. I might one day add them. I’ve since moved on to other parts of the layout.

    I am a student of railroad bridges myself and although there arent any rivites on your bridge, you can still add them with decal sheets from micro mark. I havent tried them yet but the look promising. Fantastic work, Im a fan!!!!!


  47. yemyrrej

    One other thing. You can buy an NMRA standards gauge at your local train/hobby shop. It will help you with clearances around the track to help keep your trains from hitting stuff.


  48. yemyrrej

    They are all the same scale. There are variances in height insomuch as the actual item being modeled is concerned. For instance, someone modeling trains of 100 years ago would have smaller equipment than trains of today. But the units for measuring would be the same. Six scale feet would always be six scale feet. Modern equipment like a double stack container car would be taller than a boxcar from the 1930s. There is a scale called OO. It uses the same size track, the scale is slightly different

    so are all ho scale trains the same hieght or are there sub catagories
