Camas Prairie, Pin Connected swing truss bridge
The prototype spans Clearwater river in Idaho and was constructed in 1880, used by the Camas Prairie Railroad and then by the Northern Pacific. Bridge is still in use. The Overland Model in brass is OMI 3381 and is one of the finest models produced by Tom Marsh. Only 100 were produced and they are rarely found on the market. The bridge is fully detailed, assembled and comes with two elaborate brass end piers and a center rotating mechanism on brass mounting. Very elaborate, can be motorized, and comes with copy of the Osprey nest (maybe it was used by a bald eagle) that can be put on the top of the bridge as it exists in nature. We love the model and we’ve visited the prototype. It is new in the original box (actually two boxes).
