EH5214 Ravine Trestle Kit, S Scale

 

Kit Overview: The kit features precision-cut basswood scale dimensional lumber by Kappler Mill & Lumber Company and detailed instructions on building and weathering. The kit also includes Nut/Bolt/washer castings along with the sand container that is generally found on the safety platform.

 

Kit Scale Dimensions: The Trestle is an approximate scale 115' long, 27.3' wide and the bottom of the longest bent and 39.5' high at the tallest point.

 

We use 8"x8"x10' Bridge ties (0.125" x 0.125" x 1.875") for our kits.   After subtracting the tie brace/guard rail width from the tie length, there is about 1.7" available to lay the track.  The typical tie length for S gauge is 1.5" and Sn3 is 1.125".  This means that the standard gauge track will fit, albeit a little tight (1.5" tie in a 1.7" clearance). 

A trestle is an important part of any railroad and is used by virtually every line in the world. This 4-Leg Bent Trestle will work in a wide variety of applications, either on a layout or as part of a diorama, whenever you need your trains to step gracefully over a deep ravine. The trestle is not based on a specific prototype, but rather the basic 4-Leg Bent Trestle design used on the D&RGW Narrow Gauge and Standard Gauge lines.
