deemery recent post about building a covered bridge for his HOn30 narrow gauge line inspired me to photograph the coverd bridge I built for the FCL&WR RR narrow gauge line. When living in Rhode Island I belonged to an HOn30 module group that meet on a semi regular basis to connect our modules, run trains and talk just about every thing. Because the modules traveled a distance and some times went up and down stairs the bridge was made removable. It was made about 98 or 99 so my skills have improved some since then, I think, but I still like this little covered bridge. As dave said, it is New England even if the Maine two foot roads never had a covered bridge like this one.
Bridge setup ready for trains to pass through. Top removed to show decking. I used some pc ties to help maintain gauge with all the traveling the module would see. Supports added to provide some interest when looking through bridge. I'm glad it is removeable. Many times it is removed to get at a troublesome freight car. Now that the modules are installed in their new home it's time to add guard rails
