The first GME bridge to be sold (a PL24) was sold by Winona Garden Railway of Guelph, Ontario, in November 2009, and since then they have travelled around the world, mostly to the USA, but also to Turkey, the Czech Republic, the UK, Anguilla, and Tasmania. Production quantities have been small, but they have found a niche with people who like the real rivets and the fact that they are built by hand. Some have been specials designed to the customer's requirements, and many others have been modified standard designs. In fact, shipping a standard bridge has been a rare event.
After thirteen years and hundreds of thousands of rivets, a few complete bridges are still available, and photos will be posted here soon. At the moment there are:
- One 0/S scale 24" operating bascule bridge
- One PL24 medium width plate girder bridge
- One TR 42 deck truss with G scale deck and handrails
We are still pleased to answer general bridge questions and will supply outline drawings of the GME bridges for people who may find them helpful with their own designs.
