Is that a recent picture? I haven't see the water in Lake Shasta that low in a very long time. I haven't been down there in two years due to Covid.

Interesting construction of the piers. I assume their 3D printed?

Chris, yes, XYZ Creative did piers. All drawings for this bridge were from SP drawings provided by the Shasta Division archives in Dunsmuir.The bridge footings by Master rail models (out of business 20 years) were also 3D printed as the kit provided versions were a bit over size. The entire 9 foot bridge (to scale) portion of the layout will sit under Mt Shasta on the top deck of the layout and will be removable if it ever needed moving.
