In the past, I remember seeing ads for HO scale highway underpasses and now forget where I saw them or who the manufacturer was. These were masonry urban style underpasses in various configurations and some had pedestrian sidewalks also. The highway passed under the multiple track railroad. Does anyone know how to locate one of these?

Thanks for your help,

Thanks, but this is not the one I was thinking of. I remember a more simple Eastern viaduct that was made. Not sure if it was Walthers or another manufacturer that did it. I now have a great spot to use one of these on my new layout.

Thanks, Jim

Monroe has some. But they are also 1930's designs. Here's the Walther's search page: http://www.walthers.com/exec/search?manu=493&split=60

The Walthers remind me of the Pennsy bridges . There is one on I-65 in Lebanon Indiana and U.S.30 in Valparaiso Indiana. The Pennsy keystone in the concrete is still visable.
