Skewed Bridge

Any ideas or suggestions on how best to modify a MicroEngineering thru girder bridge to be skewed 120 degrees?

On my model, the Air Line crosses the a road at a 120 degree angle and the abutments need to be parallel to the road. 

Any tips or guidance is much appreciated - and any links to examples of how someone else already tried this would be especially wonderful!


  1. I'm sure I've seen an article or two on this, maybe search on "skewed bridge" in the NMRA index? You might need an extra of the bottom lattice piece to complete the bridge, or use plain styrene and ignore the missing rivets on the underside of a bridge.

  2. Thanks Pieter - that's a great tip about the lattice. I'll probably do that.
