40" O & S Scale Suspension Bridge - CSW40O
The CSW40O employs a dual spire which remains the signature shape of all GCS tower-based bridges. The CS Open Spire design allows the suspension to spread outward, away from the bridge deck. This design prevents the suspension from interfering with the decks dynamic load.
In the real world, the CSW40O would have stood about 64 feet tall with a span of 160 feet. This bridge uses twelve support cables, each of which would be approximately 16 inches in diameter. Each cable would have consisted of smaller cables that would have then been connected to the pre-stressed concrete bridge deck.
Use two or more additional CSW40Os to span over 80 inches or 320 feet.
Both modern and retro, we hope the GCS Open Spire® Cable-Stayed Suspension Bridge will be a key feature on your layout.
