This in my plain and simple arch bridge that I made today. It's 1/4 inch masonite and 3 inch "thin wall" PVC pipe.





It's 47 1/2" long and 4" high at track level.







The color is just a coat of Rusty Metal Priner, The bright sunlight makes it look pink.



These are the sections of PVC with a coat of flat black, I only sprayed the outside edges because the
rest of it wont show like the inside .

This is the bottom side of the bridge




I glued a small piece of wood on the top of the PVC to keep it from sliding out. The spring of the pipe keeps it in place from dropping when picked up.




2 7/8" Hole saw







It will be used to replace the North Pole on my helix crossing the lake connecting the two platforms so I'll be able to run a line under both helix.

This is a terrific approach. How did you cut the PVC pipes in half? How did you glue them in place?

And: that is one clean truck bed!

Thanks for sharing,

John

John, for cutting the PVC pipe I used the PVC pipe cutting jig principle that I posted on another thread.

The pipes are not glued in, the spring from the pipe holds it in place,
I've just posted more pictures.
