CASH FLOW PROBLEM?
NO PROBLEM !
I trade bridges for G and/or F Scale trains, rolling stock, track, etc.
2014 I WILL PAY THE SHIPPING FOR YOUR TRADE ITEMS !!!
I will do the very best that I can to help you get the train bridge that you want rather than the one you have to settle for. I know how frustrating it is to find that perfect bridge for your layout. In fact, that is exactly how I got started. From the status quo to the bizarre, if you can imagine it, I will help you to make it a reality if possible. I offer some of the lowest prices anywhere as well as a trade offer to help you get the bridge that you want. All dimensions of any bridge that you see on my site can be modified to fit your needs and in most cases at no extra charge at all.
MANY OF MY BRIDGE STYLES ARE ON MY LAYOUT AND CAN BE SEEN IN USE AT . . .
AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE CLIENT GALLERY PAGE !
How long before I get my bridge?
Average build time equals about a day per foot from start to ship. Custom builds, multiple bridges, order volume and large bridges may take a little longer depending Upon complexity.
How heavy are the bridges?
About 1.5 Lb per foot assembled, extremely light but very strong and easily supports the bigger Live Steam G-Scale trains.
What paint can I use to paint the bridge?
I personally prefer flat or satin exterior enamel house paint. Spray on paint does well too but average coverage is only 2 feet per can and can be quite costly. No need to waste mioney on Primer, aluminum doesn't rust and it doesn't help the paint adhesion. I can also paint the bridge for you in ANY color you like $ 30 per bridge, saving you the time and the mess.
Can I get my bridge shipped completely built?
Absolutely. I have new great rates from FedEx and FedEx Freight. Contact me for an accurate rate quote.
What are you looking for as far as trading for bridges go?
Anything G-Scale or F-Scale. I'm not picky at all and you'll find that I'm very easy to deal with.
CUSTOM BUILT & PROTOTYPE BRIDGES
WHY HAVE SOMETHING ORDINARY WHEN YOU CAN CREATE SOMETHING AWESOME !
FREQUESNTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Custom Work is always a challenge especially when we venture outside the norm for that unique railway feature that sets us apart from other Garden Rail Roads. Unless your off-the-wall project uses extensive parts and resources, I never charge extra for the custom work.

As of July 18th 2014 I'll be handing over operations of Bridge-Man to my son Michael and his friend Tyler Gordon. Both are experienced bridge builders that have worked in the shop with me and I will still be offering designs and technical assistance. Contact information will not change though the site may be updated or redesigned in the near future as I will be working on new products while they take over the bridge building processes. During this changeover, phone service may be affected due to the routing process of the 877 number which began 06-20-2014.
DUE TO UNFORTUNATE EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES
SHANE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE TO TAKE ORDERS OR TO BUILD BRIDGES.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS.
