Rail Bridge Supports

Steve asks readers this question:

“I am building a new N scale layout and want to include new york city like subway system, one that goes above and below ground . I have it all worked out except for realistic looking support for the elevated section. I have seen decal rivets to be added but no supports for the track in N scale. I have seen it in HO scale but not N scale. Does anyone have a suggestion as it is holding me up at this point, please help?”

Add your suggestions to help Steve.

    Central Valley makes lattice girders in a variety of styles. These can be used for verticle supports. Micro-Scale makes plate girders in N scale
