do you intend to shingle over this? I assumed the siding would be board and batten like the shop building.

Museum Discussion / Howe truss bridge
« on: April 03, 2020, 06:28:52 PM »
just read an old, (2003), Frommer's travel guide for N.H. that mentions Clark's Trading Post. The entry says that they, (Clark's), claim to have the last Howe Truss railroad bridge in the world. Any further input appreciated.
(maybe this belongs under a past subject: our own Howe bridge)
