    Cool my newest http://www.ceilingtrains.com bridge

    This is bridge #11 that i just installed in my hometown. He also ordered 2 others #12 and #13 that will fit inside this one at different levels. I also built 2 others #14 and #15 to have in stock. It is a whole bunch of parts and a few thousand tacks. The tubing is 3/8" sq. This bridge is unpainted and bare metal and thats what he wanted. The ZW Transformer hangs underneath and plugs right into a ceiling box so nothing hangs down. The full 1/4 scale Lionel engines and cars really fill the space but he ir running this engine for Christmas...Bob

    The hardest part is making all of the welding fixtures. They go right together when all the major parts are done...Bob

    Excellent work Bob. I have N scale trains, quite a bit smaller. Are the tracks held to the bridges with zip ties?

    Excellent work! I still have an old Lionell train set I use to play with when I was a kid. Good times.
