Default Coat hangers and kindling bridges

I built these bridges a couple weeks ago out of store bought bags of kindling. The arch bridge I used the same but I also utilized a couple old wood coat hangers I found at the thrift store. Both bridges cost me about 10 bucks in supplies which I thought was pretty good.

Also this was the first time I've built anything from scratch. They came out a bit big because I didnt have any building, locos or rolling stock at the time to compare it to. I'll be building another soon.
