Here's what the South Manchester Drawbridge looked like at in February 2016...

From the "The Franklin & South Manchester Railroad - it's all about the details!" (page 57)

Here's what it looks like as of June 2017...

Lots more detail.

Wow. Good eye! That's one of my most influential structures ever...I've designed multiple small layout plans completely around that bridge and it's approaches, supporting buildings, pipes, etc. I never built them, but I have STUDIED those pictures...


One of the great sides of George's retirement is that there will probably be constant revisions all over the layout for the rest of his life. Fantastic to look forward to.
