This train spent longer at platform 3 than it intended as someone had pulled the communication cord. Or what ever it is that these wonderful computerized trains have now!

HO Model Railroad question, Is there a curved bridge section for sale?

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Question by Blues Lovin’ Daddy: HO Model Railroad question, Is there a curved bridge section for sale?
I have an elevated 18 inch radius curved track. I want two or three curved bridge sections. But all I can find for sale in shops are STRAIGHT bridge sections. They are inexpensive, but I really need a CURVED bridge section. Thanks.
I found it myself ($ 57.00) by doing an internet search using:
HO model railroad curved bridge.

IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE THERE IS NO BEST ANSWER> NOT ONE OF YOU FOUND A CURVED BRIDGE FOR SALE, and I could.

Answer by Jason
I’m not sure if they sell curved pieces. I know there are flexible track pieces. Look here:

Question by BLAH BLAH: What do i need to place a bridge for my Lionel train set?
I want to put a bridge for my Lionel O gauge train set. It has the Fastrack and i want to buy a bridge. I have no elevation on the track at all. What do i need to make the track rise to be able to go on the bridge.

Also is the Conrail a O gauge set and does it have Fastrack.

is the o gauge better than g

CG420 Narrow Bridge

CG420 Narrow Bridge

Visit to Northlandz in January of 2010. An astonishingly large HO model railroad layout, recommended for train enthusiasts. It occupies a building the size of a large 3-story warehouse.

Pros:
+ Quirky – some of the scenes are pretty amusing
+ Detailed – lots of fine work. You can spend a long time in one place, just looking at the subtleties
+ Huge – Very extensive dioramas
+ No that does not quite do it, how about "Gargantuan?"
+ No, still not right. I think this: "You’re lying. It cant be that big." – No, it is. Jaw-dropping. That link shows only part of one of maybe a dozen rooms. Plan on 90 minutes if you jog through, three hours if you take your time and enjoy it.
+ Organ music – The builder and owner, Bruce Zaccagnino, is a skilled organist and plays for visitors (I think every day) in a little theater in the middle of the building.

Cons:
Dust – Lots of it. I’m sure it’s a nightmare to clean, but it needs it. At HO scale, it’s up to the inhabitants’ ankles.
Disrepair – Plaster landscape cracking in places. Little figures fallen over. Not too often, but enough to jar you from your reverie.
Few trains! – When we visited most rooms were largely silent; I guess it made the trains more exciting when they did come through, but they did so rarely, and often only a handful of cars.
– Somewhat inflexible – you have one shot at moving through, then you need to buy another ticket if you want to revisit a scene. Not a big deal… except there’s only one bathroom inside at the halfway point. Remember, it’s HUGE. Know your kids’ tolerances if you go.

All in all if you like railroads (or have kids that do) you should probably see it at least once.
