  1. My train layout needs a big bridge - I have a wing of the table that is lower by about 4 inches and has 6 straights, a semi-circle, and 6 more straights supposed to go over it. I'd thought about getting some of the rare girder pieces from the 7900 Heavy Loader set to make a steel bridge, but I didn't think I'd really like the look. When the first pictures came out at the beginning of the year of the Spider-Man Ultimate Bridge Battle set, I knew I had my bridge. Sadly, for some reason, the set came out in Europe months before the US. Thanks to, I fixed that problem AND saved some money :) The US price is supposed to be $100 for the set, but I got 4 sets shipped from Europe for about $360 once VAT was removed. And shockingly, they arrived in 3 days! I put all the figs up on Bricklink to pay for my addiction, and started building. I first built them all stock, and then I looked at combining them into a longer bridge. Let's face it, the designer 100% KNEW people would do this. The set is HALF a bridge after all... and it's got a number of ways it was well designed for this usage! First, here's the stock set in case you don't know it: That breakaway section where the taxi is crashing looks like a potential problem, since it's a weak point. And the broken off end of the bridge will clearly have to go. So that's what I did - I took 2 sets, removed the broken end (which is a separate piece and comes off easily and cleanly! See, told you it was designed for this!), connected them end to end, and then started modding away the breakaway. It was pretty easy to do without needing extra pieces. The only pieces I ended up needing from my collection were a couple dark grey 1x2 plate with clip to extend the red/grey cable arch all the way. Enough talking, here it is: IMG_2298.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr I'm still going to mod a few more things (take off some of the spiderwebs, change the base a little, etc) but it's about 98% done. There's a few flaws, like having 4 pillars under the bridge that's supposed to be a SUSPENSION bridge, but oh well. I didn't redesign it enough to take those middle pillars off without it breaking when weight is on it. But it's exactly 6 track pieces long and it's sized just big enough for stock Lego train sets to work. The actual floor of the bridge is 10 studs wide, and all the stock trains I have will fit through with minor adjustments: IMG_2300.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr Maersk loco fits just fine. Scale's a little off, but it fits cleanly through. IMG_2301.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr The yellow 7939 loco fits, IF you fold the pantograph completely down, and then it has a tiny tiny clearance. I'd probably just remove the pantograph completely. IMG_2302.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr The red 3677 locomotive fits except for the horns on top. Pull them off, and you're through. IMG_2303.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr The Maersk container cars fit though too. IMG_2299.jpg by mostlytechnic, on Flickr Then end of the bridge never seen on the box looks like this - clean and ready to attach to whatever, with both Technic holes for making a good connection. Even though everything fits, I'll still probably add a couple rows of bricks to provide more comfortable clearance and in case I run any taller loads around. Anyone else planning to do this?
