HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?
The abutments and piers are designed so the base of the rail is 2.100" off your layout surface. The variables of the track
included with each bridge are accounted for.
The rail heads will match up from bridge to bridge with no need to
modify or scratchbuild piers and abutments
!

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO THE BRIDGES TO MAKE IT WORK?
The contact surface must be filed smooth. Included shoes are not used. The piers and abutments have ample support
surfaces that make the spans easy to set-up and fasten.

WHAT DO THE PARTS LOOK AND FEEL LIKE?
The Shapeways standard plastic is white, quite tough and has a surface texture that is like concrete. The parts are printed
in layers, with the layer lines sometimes slightly visible. They look like wooden form lines. The material can be sanded if
desired. I made them hollow to save material cost without sacrificing strength. They take acrylic paint well and look good
with powdered pigment weathering.

THESE ARE THE BRIDGES COVERED SO FAR (WITH ASSEMBLY NOTES):

Micro-Engineering 40' Deck Girder with Open Deck 75-151

  File the support contact surfaces smooth, file the top smooth for the track, make sure it is built square.
Micro-Engineering 80' Deck Girder with Open Deck 75-150
  File the support contact surfaces smooth, file the top smooth for the track, make sure it is built square.
Atlas Through Plate Girder 2080
   File the support contact surfaces smooth, c
ut the excess track off the ends so it is even with the girders plus a bit.
Central Valley 150' Through Truss 1810, 1815, 1820
    
File the rivet pattern on the contact area smooth. Use the included track ties. Cut your installed rails so they are even
with the bridge end.

FUTURE BRIDGES:
Walthers NEW Single-Track Arched Pratt Truss Bridge
looks like it deserves to be included.
The double track bridges (Walthers truss, Atlas through girder) might be included later.

ALSO COMING:
I will be creating a multi-span bridge scene and make an instructional pdf article. Download it here when available!
