I'm planning a new shelf layout to showcase my models. Since this all structures and track are intended to be viewed up close, this will give me a chance to expand my model building skills. I drew a simple track plan based on a real location in Northern California and decided to start with the Angels Creek bridge. After I completed the bridge I decided to make a slight modification and so this model will find its way to a fellow modeler's layout.

Ed Traxler designed them for me and made them available on his web site.

Ed used to be part of our forum and, a few years ago, wandered off. He is very knowledgeable about 3-D CAD and printing and has created a lot of nice detail parts. Too bad he wandered off. -- Russ
