40 ft. STONE ARCH BRIDGE

The 40 ft. Stone Arch Bridge was inspired by John Allen's original viaduct combining stone with ornate brick railings on his original section of the famed G&D layout.

This classic stone arch bridge could be quietly tucked away in a corner of your layout or it could be dramatically displayed as the highlight or your railroad.

The 40 ft. Stone Arch Bridge. Detail drawing of construction over benchwork.

The bridge is designed to fit under a typical wood framework of 2-7/8" wide- 1/2" plywood and 1/2" Homasote roadbed. Because of its modular design you can expand your bridge into a grand multi-span viaduct with as many additional spans as you like. You can also heighten it with taller piers and abutments.

Minimal two-track NMRA clearance underneath arch if base of bridge is railhead height, on 2 inch centers.

Kits include a pair of finely detailed arch faces, barrels, did I mention that they too are stone textured, pilasters and winged abutments all cast in white Hydrocal. Comes with complete coloring and assembly instructions.

Matches my Hand-carved Stone, coarse (HCS-c) stock casting.

The 40 ft. Stone Arch Bridge. I built this tall four span viaduct for display.

I built this tall multi-span viaduct for display. It would look great on a layout!
Reminds me of Pennsylvania, just need to add some trees.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - for this model


ON-LINE HOW TO CLINICS

  HOW TO CLINICS  
Here are a bunch of my on-line how to work with Hydrocal mini-clinics. Each kit includes specific instructions of course- and there are lots of ways to do things, but here are my thoughts, tips and techniques.

  Coloring STONE  
With a little practice you can color realistic stone walls. Here's how I do it.
What are we going to do now that Testors/Floquil has dropped their Flo-Stains?

  Coloring BRICK  
My traditional techniques for coloring and mortaring brick.

  Coloring CONCRETE  
A little gray ink wash and some colorants. It's not that difficult.


SCRATCH-BUILDING STOCK

  Hand-Carved Stone- coarse  
This is the same pattern I used on the bridge. Use it to build retaining walls and other matching details.

  Standard Common Brick- fine  
If you like to scratch-build or just want to practice before you do, check out my stock castings. These are the same building blocks I use to create my kits.


COMPLEMENTARY KITS

  The Stone Shingle Mill  
is a great introduction to modeling stone in Hydrocal. This is one of my personal favorites, and indeed, over time it's been one of my most popular kits.

  The Virginia Horse Barn  
Or how about another barn. This one features lots of board-by-board construction on top of a simple cobblestone foundation.
