Wash Basin Bridge on the White Pass & Yukon
By Russ Watson/photos by the author
What modeler doesn't love huge wooden trestles? And if the trestle dives right into a tunnel, so much the better! Author Russ Watson presents us with just such a project in the 2009 On30 Annual, and it is based on a famed White Pass & Yukon prototype to boot. Russ gives complete instructions on how to build the trestle along with step-by-step photos of the process.
As a bonus, he shows us how he integrated it into his scenery and he includes a complete Bill of Materials. Below we present the full-sized for O scale trestle bent diagram. This downloadable PDF file can be used a a template for building a trestle for you railroad.
