Custom and standard bridges for G scale, O scale, and garden railways

Gnome Miniature Engineering is located in Ontario, Canada, in a place that we acknowledge to be the traditional land of the Six Nations of the Grand River.

GME MODEL RAILWAY BRIDGES are multi-scale working structures for small railways rather than scale models. They are hand built from laser cut, brake formed parts, assembled by traditional solid riveting.

Standard bridges are built from corrosion resistant materials for year round operation on garden railways. They are ready to use, painted or unpainted, except for the installation of the track. They have been used with track from 16.5mm gauge for 0n30 to 63.5mm for Gauge 3.

GARDEN RAILWAY BRIDGES: plate girders and underslung trusses for G and larger scales.

O and S SCALE BRIDGES: plate girders, through and underslung trusses, bascule bridges.

EDUCATIONAL MODEL TRUSSES: The truss bridges are available as educational models to demonstrate the principles and properties of trusses.

The model number (TR32 etc) indicates the type and length of the bridge deck in inches. For more information, please contact us at

The bridge decks are designed to accept the popular makes of prefabricated track, such as Aristocraft and LGB for 45 mm gauge, and Peco, Atlas, Gargraves and older Lionel for 32 mm. Guard timbers are provided on all decks, and the track fits between them. For a more prototypical appearance, the rails can be chaired or spiked directly to the deck cross timbers.

Note: If you use Lionel Fastrack, please let us know before you order. Single track through trusses may need some adjustment to the deck, but double track through trusses are not suitable if 6 inch track centre spacing is used.
