Located on the Union Pacific mainline in Southern California,
the prototype for this model dates back to 1938. Spanning a narrow section of
the Mojave River that runs above ground, the massive 150-foot long bridge is an
important link in Union Pacific's LA&SL line that links Los Angeles, Salt
Lake, and points further east.
Canyon, home of this truss bridge, is located between Los Angeles and Las Vegas
on the LA&SL line as mentioned above. Near such railfan hot spots as Cajon
Pass and Tehachapi Loop, Afton Canyon offers an unbelievable backdrop for Southern
Californian rail fanning. If you're planning a rail fanning trip in Southern California,
don't miss this spot (be advised that train traffic is sporadic at best, and exploring
the canyon requires 4 wheel drive, a full tank of gas, water, and at least a full
morning or afternoon).
This is BLMA's first first completely assembled brass model. Painstakingly
recreated by hand, this model features extremely accurate dimensions, rivet detail,
and more! Spanning a solid 150 scale feet, the scale model length is 11¼"
exquisite model is available in both painted black and silver versions (BLM-2000
is Silver; BLM-2001 is Black).
