Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Bridge over the Ohio River at Sciotoville, Ohio

Harold Woods Jr.'s avatar Harold Woods Jr.

1917 Chesapeake and Ohio railroad bridge over the Ohio River. When built, the bridge was the largest continuous riveted trestle bridge in the world at 1550 feet. The first coal train crossed the bridge on July 31st, 1917. The bridge is still in use today. My ArtPrize entry is an all steel, O scale tin plate model of the bridge. My bridge is 11 inches wide, 32 inches high, and 32 feet long. The bridge weighs over 400 pounds and has over 15,000 individual pieces. The structure is one solid unit held together by over 55,000 individual gas welded connections, taking 2 years to build. I built my bridge in honor of the bridge's 100th anniversary.
