Well F40-ph2, I see no one replied so I'm thinking that I may not be the only one that's having trouble understanding your question. I took two years of French in high school and still had to cheat with a translator program for the above. This afternoon I will be out shopping for the various types of girders I need to make the towers.
I have a few HO plastic wheel sets I will be using for the pullies at the tops of the girder towers. For the counter weights I have some balsa wood strips that I will glue together and then trim to fit.
When I work out how to post pictures here I will put some up so you can see the bridge as it progresses.

Site ModelsSite ModelsWork out every detail of your planned project and examine it from every angle. ShareThisI acquired the plan of a High lift rotary coal dumper, nearly the same which is still in use at Sandusky. This dumper was the missing part of my coal hauling line and the answer to unload my hoppers.
This kind of dumper was used by severals companies, the PRR has used some like the Sandusky one. The principe is to bring a hopper, clamp it, elevate it and return it to discharge in a big chute which deliver the coal into a ship. This elevator is moved by numerous ropes and counterweight, a remarkable but complicated system. These machine are rated as 120 tons high lift coal dumper, are big like a building of six floor and strong like a bunker. Studiyng this real plan was not so easy and reduce this monster to Nscale to make it working needed a real study which take me an around two years of design and try. Finding all the materials including the small geared motors, numerous brass shape, numerous pulleys and many as possible documentation was fun, but really time consuming. I will try to build the machine as close as possible as the real thing, close at the scale as possible, and quiet well detailled.
So this week end I have begun the big challenge, most of the structure will be in brass, whith additionnal styrene details and finaly Archer rivets decals for the 1939 look. This week end I was able to build the most easiest part of the project, the two laterals side of the machine, of course in brass but whithout details because I need to manipulate them still a lot of time, part of the plan was cut and glued on a steel plate were several magnets hold all the parts during soldering. The next step is the upper floor, were all the pulleys are living and all the ropes are managed to go to the hoist pan. In the real thing the floor is a steel plate,but for my Nscale model I use a double sided PC board for rigidity an a easier use for soldering all the pulleys support.


So this evening, I cut the board to size and drilled and filled all the holes for the pulleys; again a copied plan was temporarely glued on the board and the holes are adjusted whith the plan. All the axis of the pulleys shaft are traced on the board again using the glued plan as a template. Many things to do tomorrow, just have the time to check my part list and see I miss some I beam in the 1mm range so I ordered them. I scratchbuild this turnout using a # 6 jig made by Fastrack, the gardrail is just code 55 track. These are prototype of the clamp arm which holds the cars on the craddle when the craddle is reversed. They are made from square tube in brass and the smallest slide inside the second, the small tube is fully loaded whith lead to help to slide down whith gravity; they will be helped whith a small spring to be retained a bit over the car when he is positionned on the craddle. Anyway, they need to be adjusted because there is to much play at the articulation, as mentionned they are prototype. Time was missing this week end for hard work on the dumper, but I was able to produce all the brackets I need to support all the pulleys on the upper deck. After the saterday study, I ended whith a very simple jig to cut all the brackets (28 pieces). I made this jig whith a PC board where I soldered in a hole a piece of a pulley shaft axle and a small bits of brass to hold the future brackets. After boring the I beam which form the brackets, whith the adequate hole, I simply cut the positionned I beam whith a like Xuron cutter; it seems not precise at the first sight but I ended whith a accurate duplication. The small pieces have a 4mm base and could'nt be handled in the vise of my Proxon disk cutter. Unfortunatly this process was quite time consuming but two hours later all the brackets where on hands. This production give me the opportunity to solder some of the pulleys on the deck; I hope to finish the soldering process this week. To read it, there is first the general arrangement of the deck and the elevation plan of the deck.
Upper deck is not already finished and beside the pulleys, there is also a water reservoir, an oil reservoir and a fully operating crane ! The red arrows show the special brackets needed and the blauw circle were they go in elevation on the deck.
I let a quiet long shaft because I need to adjust the height of the pulley precisely when I will put the ropes. Not much time this week  to work and some brass shape missing all delayed a bit construction. But there is so much thing to do for this machine and I look slowly at the craddle, a quiet difficult part to build which need great precision in construction to work properly.
On the real machine there is a small wheel which ride in a U shape to guide the craddle when moving up and down. One big problem was to find something suitable to make this wheel, small enough but a wheel which can ride for a long time.
I ended finaly by using a small roller bearing and adjusted the rail this evening; it was a short but constructive work. Some pictures of the U shaped rail and the roller bearing; a second one will ride along the U shape for stability. You can obtain the plan of the dumper and some other industrial plan at the following address.
Pictures have offered the answer to most of my questions, after a two year search and study to build this machine. The pulleys comes from the marine modeling hardware, there are numerous marine hobby shop who sells brass parts for ship model building.
These pulleys come from this brass hardware and it exist severals models in different size. Use a product like DAP Dynoflex 230 sealant, which can be found at most home centers and hardware stores. Next step is sot start installing trees on the railroad you can basically plant any tree you want such as conifer and pine trees. Model trees come in an assortment of sizes, when I put trees together I usually like to clump them in an assortment of shapes. Plant an assortment trees, if your layout is a foam base, then drip the end of your trees in glue and place the tree in ground.
Setting our track on a piece of wood such as bench work provides a nice surface to do the drilling and ensures your holes are being drilled on a stable area.
This was a sure and quick way to quickly and easily add hills and trees to your model train layout but there’s still 10 other things you must know to perfect your scenery and make the layout look as realistic as possible.
The most important part to creating realistic scenery that transforms your model railroad is by first planning scenery ahead of time. To master scenery will take countless hours trying to figure out the exact process for each.
You must know each of the bullet points above to ensure your model railroad does not look boring, unrealistic or lack unique scenery moments.

Model trains is not necessarily an expensive habit but beginners who fall prey to the standard trial and error format of learning how to build model train layouts end up losing motivation due to the costs of making errors. In all of my years, I have found one resource that I’ve always recommended to the model train beginners I coach on a regular basis. And a ton of other valuable information that would take 10 to 15 different books, sitting on forums threads filtering the amateur hour content from the real deal content from experts.
I can honestly say that this information guide is the best investment for model train beginners and past railroaders.
It may set you back a few bucks but the information is so valuable that it comes with a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee. I read each step, and i translate in french for rebuilt and switch the measure for my scale ( HO ). Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
This layout is themed around Bavaria in the summer bringing back the nostalgia of the 1920's.
SMARTT  site models will help you plot out all the details that make your site plan work.
One way to make hills is by using this pink or blue foam, which is a construction insulation material. Press it down correctly the first time, you only get one shot at this because the caulking with spread all over the ground if you re-lift it. This will help the trees get securely placed after being dipped into glue and stuck into the holes. Do not go down this route…spend a few bucks on a guide that will save you hundreds of dollars in the near future. But this bridge is identical to one found near the Victoria Bridge in Montreal, the locks of Saint-Lambert. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). You can stack it up in various ways, or it can be carved with a hot knife, using a hot wire tool to carve the foam.
The best feeling in the world as a model railroader is enjoying a fully operation layout with all the bells, whistles and scenery. This is the secret that will put you ahead of any other mode train beginner and save you time, money and a whole lot of frustration. So if any of you know how to build one, with the necessary equipment or Internet connection, your help I will greatly appreciate.
Most of these bridges are about 75ft tall because I use to jump off of 1 when I was a kid in Miami, Fl. When your ready you can cover it with a sculpture mold plaster or plaster cloth and then paint on your dirt color by using fine sand or dirt sprinkled on the hill.
Mind you I've never built this type of bidge, but I would start by browsing for Plasticstruct.
They have all sorts of structural parts in plastic that you could combine to make your bridge.
It looks like the builder in your photos took a truss bridge and added the masts from parts. This is a real meat and potatoes locomotive, no fancy paint jobs here, just a lot of grime. Maybe someday Walthers will rerelease its waterfront kits and add a ship to the assortment. I saw where Broadway Limited Imports have announced sharks, but they do not give any details about, what, who, and when.
12 years ago Euro Models brought in a modified version of the old Model Power freight sharks from Brazil. This is for all my NYC and SAL friends out there who would love to see this model in plastic. All one needs to do is drive by a real refinery to realize that no one has really captured their look in kit form yet. Would someone please do the Silver Meteor as a theme train?  I would love to have a model of the Sun Lounge car, Hollywood Beach.
What do you want to see in models over the next few years?  Joke of the Month A few years ago a model railroad friend was telling a story about a Baldwin RF-16 Shark that derailed at Horseshoe Curve and landed in the Altoona Reservoir below.
