I received a message the other day asking for some screenshots of the Suisun Bridge as he wanted to see the Scale Rail track, so I've taken a bunch and am sharing them here. I sortta spend my eyesight on the bridge and the train but different strokes for different folks I guess. ;)

Anyway, this is one of Phil's cab forwards and a whole train full of Tim Muir's GS gons, pulling a load of gravel towards Suisun / Fairfield.

I didn't quite make it across the bridge tho... have improve my steam locomotive skills quite a bit I guess! :blink:

The bridge is Ron Picardi's fine work. Here's a few more images I managed to get before I melted the fusable plugs. :blink:

They should give Ron Picardi some kind of award... his bridges are works of art.

Thanks Ron (and thanks Dave)!

Well the freeway and auto bridge didn't arrive until much later. As for the Shell refinery, it's not yet added to the route but is intended. Not sure about Avon and/or the Mountain Copper Company (Moccoco) at Bull Head point. Priority for some time has been for fleshing out the east bay urban scenes.

Funny how it often takes a screenshot to notice things -- among other things I noticed it looks like I've got a bridge pier well off to one side :blink: That won't do!
