This is an idea that has been hanging around for a long time now and after some research I've decided to go for the plunge and give myself a real beefy project which could form centre point to a new layout display project. Originally I'd thought about something that you could look up to maybe a line on an embankment but after thinking awhile it just seemed too mundane and thus my original Leek Arm was shelved, I've also decided to limit myself in length because from experience these grandiose ideas always fall flat at the first hurdle due to costs, space and time. However I do like bridges, I like rivers and I like rural tree scenes so this plan has all these elements including a fish ladder and an embankment with signals . So here is my idea and after some research I shall have to do a scale drawing and see how this can be condensed, this is Norbury Bridge on the old NSR Ashbourne line, the bridge crossed over the River Dove on two caissons at a skew with a beam length of 187 feet, the two leading transom beams were 81' and 124' in length each. I'd like to do this bridge in brass if possible. Original copywrite now expired under the 70 year rule but a copy of this picture belongs in the Collection of Allan C Baker.
