Trestle Bridge Parts

This bridge was introduced to the Plasticville line in 1955, and the following year Bachmann would change the number to 1604 and give it a new colorful box. The problem with this bridge is that if you look at it cross wise it breaks. I’ve broken more than one by just removing the pieces from the box. This fact makes obtaining an unbroken one difficult. Compounding this problem is the fact that the box for this kit is big and unwieldy, which makes this kit more prone to damage. Listed below are the parts that comprise this bridge.

1. Bridge End Brace Piece (2)
2. Bridge Top Piece
3. Bridge Track Brace (2)
4. Bridge Side (2)

The Parts that are sometimes missing are the braces (No. 1 and No. 3). None of these parts are reproduced.
