Someone requested a version of a footbridge to suit 3 platforms, with one span across two tracks and the other span across a single track. So here it is. It can be purchased in N Scale only at https://www.shapeways.com/product/EY574J2SF/footbridge-3-n-scale for the princely sum of US$27.



The drawing below gives the key dimensions. I'm sure I will follow up with a more normal double twin track version soon.

Unfortunately Peter this is another example of where 3D printing really favours the N scalers. I have put up an OO scale version, but it's US$115. It 's an example where the volume dictates the price. Double the scale and you end up with a volume that is cubed. Very unfair with a lattice structure like this, because most of that volume is fresh air, but that's the way Shapeways choose to calculate their pricing at the moment.

 I agree Peter.  Modellers, and indeed, designers, found that, when Shapeways altered their pricing policy, the larger scales were heavily penalised.

A great pity because the product is superb.  When I look at some of the prices at Shapeways, I think they've made a typo.  Often, I can't imagine anyone paying what they want to charge.
