Ogden Creek Viaduct – Base Kit
The Ogden Creek Viaduct was inspired by the numerous reinforced concrete bridges and viaducts that are found along the “Lackawanna Cut-Off”. This engineering marvel is a nearly flat and straight right-of-way that extends from Scranton, PA to Hoboken, NJ. It was built by the Lackawanna Railroad in the early 1900’s and portions of it are still in use today by Conrail (aka., NS or CSX). In order to keep this right-of-way level and straight, tons of fill and numerous bridges were used to span the roads and valleys along it. These bridges were built in an ornate yet functional “neo-classical” style that was made famous by the Lackawanna Railroad. This kit is available as a base kit designed to reach the edges of the valley or ravine and an Expansion Kit (#10300) that allows for infinite lengthening of this span. Expands up to four(4) tracks wide. Each Base Kit includes two(2) small columns, two(2) large columns, two(2) angled arches, a middle arch and a fully supported ballasted deck. Overall dimensions are: H:4 1/2″ X W:2″ X L:8″. See diagram for more detailed dimensions.
