A pair of curved through plate-girder Bridges
Author: BN7023

If you, especially modelers, cannot believe following photos, please visit Tokyo, Japan.
These are Manseibashi overpasses, built in 1928, of JR Cyuo-Line, between Kanda and Ochanomizu station.

And a pair of Curved truss Bridges
Author: BN7023

Though we modelers had learned to make bridges straight, some curved trusses appeared in the real world recently!
These are Nagasu over passes, built in 1994 and 1997, near JR Amagasaki-station, Hyogo, Japan. http://goo.gl/maps/IJbwr
Several people have tried to model, but it does not seem to complete.

Japanese rail infrastructure is very impressive. Good layout, design, application. I love looking at it. That curved truss bridge is really cool.
