Bridges for Model Railroaders

Blair Line LLC offers two styles of authentic scale wooden trestles. Our kits include scale lumber and follow standard railroad engineering design.
Pile and frame trestle includes piers with square posts that sit on a horizontal bottom support (sill) and is the original model railroad bridge kit with laser-cut parts. This type of bridge was commonly used in areas where the soil was too rocky or unsuitable for pile driven round piers. This bridge is easier to build than our other bridge.
Common pile trestle which has piers with round posts. This was arguably the most common bridge type to be found on prototype railroads. The prototype posts (piers) are driven directly into the ground to bedrock or to a depth that will support the bridge.
