The bridge is now sitting as it should.
I had to toss the cast metal bearings from Micro Engineering and cobble up my own, but once they're painted black, they'll mostly disappear.
It took about an hour to trim the footings for the piers and reglue them back into place.
My thanks to all who offered up suggestions to resolve this issue, with one notable exception. Chris is clearly still suffering after affects from the caulk in the eye incident in the Train Masters TV studio earlier this year.
With things back on "track", the actual rail and ties were glued down and the first acid test performed.
Now for the next step.
That'll be finicky.
