Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Combine the cool principals of physics and industrial age design with this easy to build bridge kit by master model designers Pathfinders. 

  • Build time approximately 60 minutes
  • Natural wood and plywood - no coatings so easy to paint
  • Includes stickers for roads and signs
  • Completed size 70cm x 30cm x 12cm
  • Recommended age 7 to 12 years
  • Scaled to fit wooden model train tracks

Probably the coolest bridge in the Pathfinders series, this is a replica of the Joseph Strauss design that was made all over North America in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Well known bridges of this type are the Johnston Street (Blue Bridge) in Victoria, B.C., Wishka River bridge in Washington, the Ashtaula Bridge in Ohio, the Cherry Street bridge in Toronto and the Third Street Bridge in San Francisco.

Sized to fit wooden train sets, this bridge is an elegant reminder of the cool truss bridges that used to be built years ago and are still in use! Great to use for school bridge studies and to learn more about interesting linkages, this kit will bring a new level of sophistication to playing with wooden cars and trains. Graffiti is not included, but that gives you the chance to be creative!

Age Rating: 7+ The bridge kits can be made by youngsters starting around 7 years old, however we like that it is both interesting and compelling for kids of all ages – right up to those in their 90’s! They are working re-creations so are great for school bridge projects.
