I would like to do a 6 leg bent design. Would anyone have specific measurement s or a template in PDF form?

I would recommend that you cut a piece of cardboard to fit between your abutments and trace out the curve of the track and then see how 6 bents would fit so that the rails are always over the stringer sections. If you go to my construction thread you can see how I laid out my trestles and bridges using this method.

On my bents I just eyeballed the angles of the legs until they looked good. I think something in the 4" per 10' of length for the outside legs.

Half that for the next set of legs. The middle ones always vertical. I use the same template for all of my bents regardless of height. If you don't have any track laid yet then draw out the radius and pick your span length and go from there.

Hope this helps. Country: Canada Posts: dougcoffey Fireman. Save yourself some work and build a 5 leg version. My own are the 4 leg variety as used on early standard and most narrow gauge. For what you have in mind a 4 leg type would be fine, save you time and effort, look great, and no one would ever drop by and wonder why you didn't use 5 legs. Save Password.

Hi guys , I've started on the new layout and I would like to incorporate a curved trestle in the layout and I would like to build this from scratch.

Appreciate any help can get Thanks Lynn. Country: Canada Posts: Lynn, without knowing the radius of the curve and the length between the abutments it will be hard to have a set of templates for you. Phil Z POR press on regardless. Country: USA Posts: Thanks guys for the information I ended up jumping the gun and ordering a jv models curved trestle item Lynn, a 6 legger would be modern for the heaviest of steam and multi unit diesel lash ups.

Taking notes, thanks buddy, see you in the funny's. Railroad Line Forums. Steam was generated in 0. Powered By: Snitz Forums

Model railroad bridges are similar to the real things in that they must be first built solidly and then inspected regularly. To build sturdy model railroad bridges, hobby brands such as Model Engineering Works sell extensive kits as well as individually packaged parts to allow you to adjust the structure of your bridge according to the specific needs of your unique scene. Though they may require a decent amount of time to put together, these kits take the stress out of building attractive and solid model railroad bridges from scratch. But as stated, they do need to be reinforced in order to withstand the repeated crossings of locomotives. To help you add necessary rigidity and strength to your longer model railroad bridges, modeler Tony Koester teaches you a few expert tips that are discrete, adaptable and inexpensive. The first step in making your model railroad bridges sturdier and more durable is to give them a framework that can withstand repeated use without succumbing to wear and tear.

Hi Jack from Star, Idaho. I was asked a while back about what engineering guide I referred to when I built my large trestle. The online book was filled with lots of information about how different trestles are built, timber size, bent spacing, and deck building. Check it out and I am sure it will help you with any questions you may have. In addition, I was asked what I used to make my rocks in my trestle photos. I bought some premade rubber molds and I am sorry but for the life of me I can not remember the company. They came in sizes like 15 inches by 24 inches.
