Peter,
         Crap crap crap!  Copycatting other modelers, taking out of focus off-center photos, literary misspelled commentation, with ridiculous out of scale modeling with unbelievable horrendous modeling skills and technique.  I'm sorry sir, but none of the aforementioned comments can apply to you and this absolutely stunning & incredibly professional build pictorial thread.

I felt I should add to this totally original build you are sharing with a commensurate original reply.  I'm all eyes!  keep on truckin' Thanx Thom...

Doweling the framework.


Over 11 metres of timber went into building the towers.

The pulley wheels I wanted were too expensive (to buy ten of them). So I came up with an alternative by solder-sweating different sized washers together.
My first attempt had too much solder, but got it right after that.

The towers are not actually in place in these photographs. They are just positioned to see how it will look, and how close the span bumpers would get to the towers. The towers have to be installed at the same time as the road surface.
