Bridge with butterscotch amd red litho on the girders and a single span. Corner braces at the top of both sides of the bridge. They are just a metal stripe, making this an earlier bridge. Another property that changed over time was the height of the bridge, count the number of patterns in one of the supporting ties. This bridge has 5 and is 5 inches tall, later versions have 6 and are 6 inches tall. The 98 was always the basic bridge, it had two approaches and one trestle. The No. 99 Bridge was always the same except it had two trestles or spans. When the bridge was made for One gauge track, it was numbered 98-1, when made for electric track it was numbered 98-3, and if the bridge was for One gauge electrical track it was numbered 98-1-3. Bridges built to use with wide gauge track were numbered 99-2-3. The 99 meant 2 spans, the '-2' meant wide gauge track, the '-3' meant it had electric track, of course wide gauge bridges only came with two spans and electric track. A No. 99-3 would have two spans and be for 0 gauge mechanical track.
