Hi all,

Starting an ambitious modelling project of the road bridge over the rail line at Parkesbourne, about 15km west of Goulburn, See map link:

Does anybody have any photos of this bridge; particularly the underside. The top surface I can see enough from Google, but want to see what type of structure it is and the support details.

Alternatively if there's similar bridges (bound to be?) then photos of that would also be appreciated.

Bonus points for anyone who has measurements of these (including timber member sizes).

Cheers and thanks in advance.

Meh,

If you contact Rod at Harlow Graphics, Goulburn he may have one of the H0 Laser Rail Bits kits available, or may be able to run one off for you at a different scale if so required.

This blog entry is for the double track bridge kit at Cooks Cutting.

Thanks both, much appreciated Smile

I've searched every combination of 'Parkesbourne Road Bridge' but nothing came up. Also NSWGR timber bridges didnt help for this one either.

Again, thanks a bunch.

Just noticed this thread has been resurrected.  If you have not already noticed the fourth photo in the blog link by NSWRcars is the Parkesbourne Road Bridge looking NW.

Happy bridging,
