Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Bridge No. 451/1
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Bridge No. 451/1 crosses the Cuyahoga River carrying a switch track serving the Jaite Company, a paper mill in Summit County, Ohio.

The Jaite Co. paid for the bridge construction, which otherwise would have been prohibitively expensive for a spur serving just one industry. Right of way for the switch lead was secured in 1907, and construction was completed by 1909.

Bridge No. 451/1 is a through Pratt truss. It is 138 feet 9 inches pin to pin, and has a clear width of 13 feet 9 inches and a 19 foot 10 inch height clearance. Carnegie steel supplied the steel.
Our Free Plans of Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Bridge No. 451/1 would allow a model railroader to create an intricately detailed model that would definitely set their model railroad layout apart from others.
