Good and refreshingly brief rules!

I shall respect that as a correction from a native speaker, so it'll be updated... Very Happy

I think the spirit of these thoughts is based on that they only come once upon a time. Very Happy

Another effort, this is 132 metres wide (or long if it's rotated)

Not far out, Ben.

The mesh dimensions place the top of the parapet at 21m. But the support piers are minus 10m at he base so total height is 31 metres.
So a great rannge is possible depending how far you want to sink it.
Adjustment is simple for any height within the range by single statement of +/- y value in the freeobj command.

Is it wide enough for one track or two Gray? I had planned to use something like this on my tram route for when its out of the town crossing a valley, you have inspired me now!

I made it to carry a road over the track. If it was rotated 90deg. and used under the running rail it would only be sufficient for a single line. As the deck is not visible it is unfinished behind the parapets.

Here's another one. 20 m high, 125 m long. It is a model of the Dollis Brook viaduct in Finchley. It was built to take double track (although only one track is present). It takes the Northern line Mill Hill branch over the Dollis brook valley.

Tasty! The only downside to any big viaduct is all the work on additional scenery to get the best out of the viewcam. A viaduct from the driver's eye view isn't quite such a big deal.
