Check out the following photo for a close up of how I integrated the

roadbed, the ME bridge and the Chooch abutments. The railroad ties

being used as cribbing to hold the ballast was a method that was used

on the prototype in a location here in Kentucky. Notice how the first

tie not on the bridge is on top of the ties used for cribbing.
