Description
 
The PRR, in 1907 (revised 1911), issued drawing number 59146 for a standard trestle design to be used for the unloading of coal wherever on line customers required. The bents beneath the rails helped to form storage bins into which hopper cars were unloaded. The standard length was 75' long, but the design could be extended to whatever length was required by either terrain or the operator of the coal yard. In reality, this unloading platform was nothing more than a light duty railroad trestle.
Features
Features 100% laser-cut components so there is no need to cut bundles of strip wood to size or use complicated jigs as found in other manufacturers' kits - all the hard work as been done by our lasers! The timbers have even been pre-notched making assembly of the bents, stringers, and bracing a breeze. Also included are laser-scribed boards for forming the coal bins beneath the trestle and the walk ways, and delicate handrail, as well as Micro-Engineering code 70 rail and a combination gauge for keeping all the ties and rail properly spaced.
