  2. Pony Truss Girder 500mm (PTG50)
    I am 100% pleased with the bridge. Your craftsmanship is top notch. Those miter joints are perfection.
    Thank you so much. I would shake your hand if I could. Thank you. I am very excited to see a locomotive crossing for the first time. (Oregon USA)

  3. Through Plate Girder 750mm
    I have received your bridge safe and sound. It is perfect, a wonderful piece of mini engineering, smashing, and to finish it of, the two plaques, a very nice surprise. I will send you a cheque in the post, and round the sum up for your favourite charity or a beer for yourself. Thank you very much for all your hard work, photos, emails, good humour and not forgetting the bridge its self. It goes without saying I will order a couple more bridges from you in due course, all the best.

  4. Under Arched Girder Bridge 1080mm with parapets powder coated dark green
    Very many thanks for the excellent bridge which has been beautifully constructed and finished. The box was a work of art in itself and ensured that it arrived in perfect condition.

  5. The BS125 bowstring bridge arrived completely intact. The workmanship and materials are superb. It is a fine addition to my railroad. The bright aluminum trusses are even reflected in the the water that flows under the bridge.

  9. I can only echo all of the previous comments. I received 2 gauge 1 bridges from Michael. They are truly excellent & I'm very pleased with the result.They look great. Extremely practical for my use with their lightness & ease of removal & refitting.

  10. MVL have recently completed my order for a 32mm double track deck panel bridge with gold finish and hand rails. I am only just starting to create the Cliley Light Railway and wanted a product that would add realism and be a feature to both railway and garden. MVL have certainly delivered a structure that impresses in both quality and detail. I am delighted with the finished product. I can't wait to complete the next steps of forming the railway which hopefully will see trains running by Spring 2015.

  11. Just received the three bridges I ordered and they all look fantastic, beautifully engineered and I know they are going to make a wonderful addition to the railway, just as soon as I complete the waterfall and pond they are designed to cross..... Will be sure to post some pictures as soon as it's complete. Thanks also Michael for all the advice and help.

  12. Absolutely delighted with the bridge. Superb construction and very impressive at 1.6m long. This is my second bridge from MVL and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

  13. Pony Arched Girder Bridge 1250mm (PAG125)
    To say that I am impressed with the quality of build would be somewhat of an understatement - it really is superb and so too is your standard of packaging. You can be assured that I will be singing your praises at various garden railway meetings in my area during the coming season. Once again, thanks you for your fantastic service.

  14. First class. I only needed a 500mm Pony Truss bridge to cross a narrow 'ravine'. Now installed - it's a good looking feature of the Stoneywall Railway. Thank you.

  15. Pony Arched Girder 1500mm (PAG100)
    Once unpacked and with a length of track dropped into it and a coach set on it, it really does look splendid and I am extremely pleased with the result.

    I have today tried it out on the grass and it will all fit in well with the curved approaches I have been working to. I am not sure it will get into place properly until the spring, but it should work perfectly.

    Once the full circuit is up and running I will be better able to address extensions and see what other bridges I may need - either one or two seems likely. In that event I shall be pleased to come back to you for them.

  16. Under Arched Girder 1000mm (UAG100) with parapets. Bridge was waiting on the doorstep when I came in from the garden and has been duly unpacked and ceremonially fitted in place and even my wife agrees that it looks magnificent. Great job.

  17. Gauge 1 Plate Girder bridge bridge built to special order. An excellent built bridge that arrived well packed and by the date you said it would. Extremely happy with it, it almost seems a shame to put it outside in the weather. Very satisfied and I would recommended you to anyone who wants a bridge. Looking forward to my next special order bridge when you get back from NZ.

  24. Am over the moon with the latest addition to my layout. The bridge arrived, well packaged, on the date promised in impeccable condition and looks amazing. I could not ask for better service from Michael. Thanks once again!

  25. I am extremely pleased with my two bridges, they are very well made, fit perfectly and look so much better than the home made wooden versions that they replace.

    Michael's service is excellent, the bridge lengths were non standard but exactly as specified. The delivery date was as quoted at the time of order a couple of months previous and arrived very well packaged and without any damage. The feature on the website which enables the order progress to be seen is extremely helpful.

    Overall I am a very happy customer and would not hesitate to recommend MVL Bridges for quality and service.

    Thank you

  26. I've just installed my second MVL bridge and as before I'm delighted. The first bridge, a bowstring bridge certainly looks the part and I was so pleased with it I decided to replace a home made timber lifting bridge with an underbeam bridge. Michael provided an extra couple of arms to allow the bridge to lift and it looks a treat!

  27. Please find attached a couple of photos of the new bridge in pride of place on the railway. I am absolutely delighted with it and am happy to report that it slotted into place perfectly. It has made a really fantastic feature on the railway and tremendous.

  30. I am now the owner of a number of these bridges; Bowstring, Under Arch Girder (x2) and Through Plate (x3) and I am completely satisfied with all. They look the part, are more than sufficient for their intended purpose and were dispatched in accordance with the delivery estimnate and well packed to withstand their transport by courier. One of the bridges was requested to a different size to the standard range and this was quoted and then undertaken will all the friendy assistance and advice that i have found when ordering bridges from this source.

  33. The Elmtree Line has received multiple bridges from the MVL Workshops, all of which have been very strong and look superb. They have been easy to paint and will be maintenance free for many years!
