Curt84328 Posted May 9, 2019 Share Posted May 9, 2019 First, let me make it perfectly clear. I think Roter Brummer did a fantastic job on his Wooden Trestle set. I have a few observations. 1st, ties were not always used on track that was crossing a trestle. Sometimes the rails were spiked directly to the top of the trestle 2nd, bracing parallel to the track, and within the pillars was totally mandatory. I would consider 2 beams to be minimum for MBS. Because of the pillar configuration, it makes it impossible to mount bracing on the diagonals of the pillars (Just an observation) Finally 2 old pictures, the first, Dale Creek Bridge, The Second, Devil's Gate Note the Cables bracing Devil's gate.
