After the Civil War, the building of the transcontinental railroad was the nineteenth century's most transformative event.

Since most North American railroad bridges are more than a years old, there are only a few examples of more recent large scale concrete beam bridges. The s reconstruction of Mexico’s Vera Cruz to Mexico City line produced some spectacular structures including a foot ( meter) high prestressed beam bridge over the Metlac River.

    The textures wrap around the corners of the model building so that there is no card edge visible. Furthermore, the brick or stone pattern is correctly laid out so that where you see a stretcher (long) face on one elevation at a corner, the header (short) face of the same brick is seen on the other elevation and there are no vertical mortar joints on the corner.

Railroad bridges and train trestles can trace their roots back to the industry's beginnings in the midth century. Prior to the development of iron, and later steel, early bridges were built of either stone or wood. During this time engineers designed some quite stunning, and perhaps somewhat harrowing, wooden bridges that appeared as if they might not hold a person let alone a heavy train.

Stone arch bridges have been around since the beginning of recorded history. There are several famous stone arch railroad bridges and viaducts, and were often made with limestone or granite blocks. Some of the earlier stone bridges were simple, single arch bridges meant for pedestrian or animal crossings, and were sometimes made using fieldstones.

Railroad bridges and trestles always get short thrift in most books that try to cover the full history of bridges. These three make up the slack as they exclusively trace the history and engineering of North American rail bridges.
