Bill, that sounds fantastic! I'm so glad you are planning this kind of a project. Whatever you end up producing, I will promise to purchase at least 2 of them!
There are a number of worthy wooden trestles on the Abingdon branch, but if I had my druthers, I would vote for the "tin" bridge and trestle from the Saltville line as my favorite iconic candidate.

Subject: Trestle Info Needed
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.
