Very impressive model! Fantastic!

For interest, as far as I'm aware there is only one operational Centurion Bridgelayer in private hands. It was recently re-located to Queensland, Australia, from Winton, in Victoria - a trip of more than 1,500 kms. The attached image shows the bridge in the vertical position during the recovery phase at Winton. The complete bridgelayer (bridge loaded!) traveled by low-loader to Queensland: now THAT'S an oversize load!!
