Odd modelling idea #347

I just can’t remember where this picture came from.   But if you have an old coach that is past its best, how about using it as a bridge over a stream?

As a river engineer, I’m not totally convinced by this – surely the first out-of-bank flood (every 2 to 5 years) will just wash the coach away, even if it’s bolted to the concrete abutments.  Perhaps this is an irrigation channel or a mill race where the flows are limited in some way.
