This review is from: Hornby R8008 00 Gauge Grand Suspension Bridge (Toy)
This superbly modelled suspension bridge would be an asset to most layouts, but you need lots of space to use it as a working rail bridge. Assembled it is 1370mm long, and then you need to add the space to achieve a slow incline at both ends, which probably would take you up to 8ft.at least.even using curves.In my case my layout size is only 6,x4-6" so I cannot use it in the intended way at present.I decided to use it as a road bridge, and parked some vehicles on it, and put it across my layout, it just fits. I recognise that this would not be to everyones satisfaction, but it suits my layout fine, and has greatly enhanced it and becomes very much a centre piece.To put it across the rails in this way you may need to know where the towers fall, so I offer the appended measurements.The distance between the end towers, and the large tower is approx. 300mm,and the distance between the two large towers is approx. 625mm. Just as a matter of interest the height to the top of the main towers is 200mm
The kit is easy to assemble, and clicks together well. The most tricky part is hanging the suspension units which are fitted on little C hooks on small pegs, these can be in the habit of 'springing' if you move the bridge, so I used a little drop of clear plastic glue on each peg, and this is not noticeable.
I think this is good value for money off Amazon.
