O-Gauge

                 For this O-gauge project our goal was to model a bridge on the North Shore Line. The customer sent us a picture of what he wanted and a few specifics on details. The customer had decided on a riveted double track deck girder. With the deck girder he had asked that we create the two abutments in the picture to compliment the deck girder.

                This deck girder was the first of its kind. We designed two separate rail beds for the bridge to give the customer freedom on where he wanted to place his tracks. These rail beds fit nicely behind the girder plates so that they are not noticed from the side view. We also added rivets, lettering and custom paint to the girder rails.

                 The next phase of this project was the abutments. We decide to create the abutments out of H.D.P.E. a plastic material. This material can be cut like wood but will last forever. We also added holes to the abutments so that the deck girder could be fasten in securely. Later when the abutments were finished we sprayed them with a textured plastic sandstone paint to create a concrete look.

To wait the lecture with entire concentration students should only put in writing the main ideas. They need to make note on the bases of the people ideas. They must crystal clear their mind by inquiring or raising questions just before teacher.

As early as now, I can see that you'll succeed in this O-Gauge project. Good thing that the client send some photos that will serve as a guide to your project. It's more convenient to work on a certain project when your client have a definite goal for their bridge. I hope nothing but the best for the team. Provide North Shore Line a well-structured and beautiful bridge!
