    With all due respect I believe you need to research web hosting which is what you are talking about! I do not know of any hosting site that will allow you to just "text in". You open an account with a hosting service and upload your web pages and images using an FTP program.

    Alternately many ISPs offer free web pages, check yours. The bottom line is the same, you create your HTM pages and upload them along with your images (usually to an Images folder) in order to access them via the web. Usually the home page has to be named index.html. Hope this this helps you somewhat!

    As a quick follow up, any page may be accessed by adding its name to te main URL, e.g. www.mysite.xxx/mypage.

    Setting up a web site does involve a little bit of effort! It doesn't just happen! Check out your ISP for free web pages and if no luck there do a web search on web hosting services. There are an awful lot of them but most will cost you! As siad above I use JustHost and would recommend them!

    here, I'll start showing my own photos that will appear in the website.

    First, we have the worlds cutest Rails to trails trestle.


    JJ stuff 284.jpg

    JJ stuff 283.jpg

    JJ stuff 286.jpg

    JJ stuff 281.jpg

    JJ stuff 285.jpg





    The railings were replaced this spring after a snowmobile that wasn't supposed to be on the trail hit the hand rails. Also, note it dosen't have ties supporting the deck.

    This bridge is located along the north CNW corridor, on the lake minnetonka regional trail.
    It was built before 1980. It goes over a low lying area near tamerack lake. I consider it to be in Victoria, although it is possible it is in shorewood. It is located 1.2 miles from downtown victoria.
    This trail eventually ends up in downtown minneapolis. I have biked the whole thing, all 19 miles of it.

    On my website, when complete, look for it under Bridges By State-Minnesota-Victoria-Lake tamerack trestle
    You will have to go through 4 pages to get to it.

    can someone please help me here quick. I don't know, but I've gotten photos on the Carver river bridge, but when I'm doing the carver mainstreet bridge, the photos come up as little red x's. I got the adresses correct, but still cannot get it to work. I hope someone can figure this out.

    OK, after a ton of waiting, here is the first webpage. I have the Carver bridge, carver mainstreet bridge and the tamerack lake trestle done, but the carver bridge is the only one viewable. Infact, the only reason anyone can view this is because of sean. I am trying to get the pages up to the public and trying to fix a number of broken hyperlinks.

    John is learning html and doing it the old fashioned way with a text editor. It is quite a learning experience but he seems to be getting there!

    It's like learning to do long division before getting a calculator. Perhaps not the most efficient way to do math, but almost certainly the best way to thoroughly learn and understand what you're doing and how/why it works.

    Good for you John, for learning this, and Seanm for helping him!

    Hey, I don't know if you're still collecting bridges, but here's a short one I snapped a while back and then forgot about.





    Note the C&O logo still on the center of the girder.

    Twindad, your pictures will be used at some point. First, I have to get my pages up. If I can't find stories, it may get put off.

I also need a description of what it's over, where it is located, what state, what county and what city. I also need to know a description, what railroad owns it. Rails to trails bridges accepted.
    I don't know how far you want to get into the bridge business. There is a neat presentation from the US Military Academy on the subject which might be of use to you. See the West Point Bridge Design Contest at the following web site
