Bridges of Standard County...
Ok, it's a little cheesy but I love bridges. I haven't seen a layout that has these bridges set up this way. Most of the layouts I have seen are plastered with a Hellgate or two (or four or eight). These little bridges have some personality (they look like real bridges that you see everywhere in the Northeast, try driving up the Bronx River Parkway in NY to the Kensico Lake Damn or through the middle of New Jersey). They're everywhere.
I'm not sure how those ramps handle any kind of speed though. I have a mint version of the 101. I may try some heavy stuff on it....
I know there is probably not a ton of cash in reproducing these but it would be nice if someone did it. Some different color variations would be great.
Also, there is some nice stuff out on eBay this week. I am bidding on a #17 caboose. Saw some nice Ives out there as well. Yes, I know, it's probably a little overpriced but it's fun just to watch it get bid up.
