So far this is the only one I'm doing this way, but maybe more in the future. I'm just not sold on doing the railway bridges this way, they look too 'empty' to me.
I agree on the empty bit about the wide bridges for rail and there isn't many designs where can do that and make them look nice.
An idea Wallyweb gave me and he has done so with the new set he working on ..
Most bridge surfaces same, just the pylons are different. He suggest make object pylons to go under the bridges too.
Looking at doing this with the wide bridges. Basically just have the one surface design road and a rail (so far I have 2) and default pylons, and then make a few object pylons so can have different effects.
I do really like the look of the wooden trestle you made, my wood trestle looks a little naked without the cribbing under it
It is certainly a good idea to keep in mind!
Now, veering a little off-topic from the current conversation, I thought I might show off something new.
I've never been very satisfied with any of the cantilever bridges that are available, and a search for something like I wanted turned up empty (I hope I didn't miss one somewhere!), so I decided to make one:

As you can probably tell it is a modified form of the existing steel truss bridge, so I guess it isn't entirely
new, but close enough
Rather than take up another bridge slot I've opted to make this the 'rail' version of the steel truss, while keeping the old style for the 'road' bridge. I will probably recolor it as well at some point, and maybe try making it a little rusty like the plate girder bridge, but I think it is good for now.
