My friend Scott called me from Trainmaster Models today to tell me that my bridge materials had arrived. Yippee! I drove straight there after work. It was quite a load! My wife is going to have a cow when she found out how much I spent on wood!
That is a full scale $2 bill lying there on the table. I used it because I don't have any real money in my wallet to show you how big the pile is. Truss bridges in O scale eat up a lot of timber!!! This is a $101 pile, btw...and I never said becoming an MMR is cheap.
A pack of turnbuckles. These are cored for .025 wire. Buy the four you need, get another dozen free. Oh well.
3/8 x 2" x 24" basswood planks. These will be ripped for the 18" base timbers. Since wood is getting so expensive I might invest in a good mini saw and cut my own.
Next stop...the saw!!!
