P&LE Beaver Bridge, Cantilever design, HO gauge L. E. Diorama MAO $1,099.00
The river barge in pic 1 is HO scale and is a ringer! I will build out the remaining 8 models on this listing and then retire this bridge. A model now is a good time to order. I now offer piers that provide the appearance of either cut stone or poured concrete. Photos of dioramas under constfuction.
Listing will include two (2) sections as noted below. Material: Metal (Aluminum) & Plastics. Length, 10.0 feet/ 120" x Width: 5" x Height, inner clearance for 3 1/2" Height, at highest point cantilever towers 12.69" from deck to top of highest point.

I can vary height of piers.Bridge in photos height from waterline to top of tower approximately 18. Turn off electrical service to this area of your layout when installing the bridge. Use extreme caution when incorporating model into your layout as Aluminum is an excellent conductor of electricity and represents a shock hazard!
The P&LE was an interesting railroad. The "Little Giant" funneled massive amounts of raw materials into the Pittsburgh area and end products out to domestic and offshore locations. Neat railroad to model or base a generic railroad on the theme.
As of 2013, with 103 years service, the "Beaver" bridge, was and is, used in heavy daily revenue service on this busy CSX high density traffic corridor. Bridge is an engineering marvel and an excellent candidate for my new series of limited edition, signature series bridges. Designs will be offered in N, HO, S & O gauge. Iam interested in expanding my product line to include historic & famous"steel" designs that are found on class 1 railroad mainlines. These bridges, often taken for granted, span large rivers and have played a major role providing a seamless rail transportation network in the United States.
Today, after many decades of service, they are an intregal part of our transportation network. Ihave offered a line of architectural models, including bridges, viaducts, tunnel portals, retaining walls and structures found along the right of way since1989' I originally started out building models replicating subjects I could not find in the market place. Goal is to offer several "Steel" models, intermediate to large designs, with good level of detail, a structure with sufficient size and detail, not exact, but close, capturing the character & mass of the prototype. Designs geared for the serious modeler.Help me to access level of interest in producing this product.
