Pennsylvania truss is named after the Pennsylvania Railroad, whose engineers developed the design in 1875'. It is yet another variant of the Pratt truss with polygonal top chords and panels that are additionally subdivided by ties and struts. The sloping of the top chords saves materials and best places the depths of the truss at the center of the span, while the subdivided panels distribute the loads uniformly and handle secondary stresses well. The Pennsylvania truss was well-suited to long spans and remained popular through the early decades of the 20th century. The item "Pennsylvania Truss Bridge, 1875' HO Gauge.
