I built the bridge and then the elevated track sections...and then assembled track and leveled and ballasted... a LOT of work.. ! Frank worked on trains and buildings... and here is a video of the train run....and a pic of the train... :-)

You guys did an awesome job to say the least! As a retired railroader, I can tell you your video brings back memories. I am going to watch it again
