I don’t have anything on Abingdon Branch, but I am pretty sure the ICC Valuation books for the Dry Fork Branch have photo copies of the trestle plan. Look under Branch Line structures. Bridge No. 2288 over Track Fork is a 1,244.17 steel viaduct. It is 123 feet high at its highest point. Two pictures of the viaduct on pg 126 in NWHS publication, “Dry Fork – Norfolk & Western Branch Line.”
There is a trestle plan for Trestle No. 2 at Maybeury on pg 33 of “Norfolk & Western in West Virginia.” Trestle No. 2 was a 24-span timber trestle that was 467 feet long, 113 feet 3 inches high at Bent No. 12. See HS-CC10501.

I have been wanting to create a tall frame trestle kit and have been studying the N&W Standards Book. There are lots of variables there based upon length, height, and loco loading weight, so I figured focusing on a specific prototype might be best.
Looking at some of the photos of the Abingdon Branch shows some that might work. I have scanned over the society archives, but could not find what I need.
Anyone know the length and height of some of them, like #7 or #8?
I have a stack of my N&W books that I am taking to the house tonight to start studying photos. Need to find a few that are clear and shot from the side.
Greatly appreciate your thoughts.
