This mountain bridge was designed for my 120"X80" layout to seperate the Castle display from City. The City is 80"X80" and has an elevated train that goes around the outside of the layout.
About this creation
Here are the updates: I integtated the 9V Train Control into the hillside because this corner will end up in the back of my layout where I usually place the control anyway. Redesigned the arches over the river to make them flow with the rest of the MOC.

Hallo Kevin, Your bridge is beautiful. Would look great on a Lego show too. It looks like you did build the landscape symmetrical: did you do that for a specific reason?
Thank you! I built it symmetrical so you can remove a or add a section (depending on the size of my layout) so the seems would match up. It will be in our club show this weekend at the Addison Public Library, Illinois. Our web site, http://www.NILTC.org. I will add more pix after the show because I modified it allready with some improvements.
Extremely beautiful! I love that kind of landscaping, always wanted to do something like that, but it's just very part-consuming... The river, the waterfall, the numerous little bows of the bridge - very picturesque! I also like how the curves' pillars look when itīs all connected. Now you'd need to add the decends, making the track raise/decrease a third or two thirds of a brick per rail piece... I once had a nice layout where I made the older 12V tracks go up to the level of my two sea ports, so there was a shunting track right in the harbor. Was tons of fun to play with (loading cargo from ship to train or to truck, etc.)Anyways, very nice work! Best regards, Steffen
