Black Bear Scale Models
23607 Galaxy Court
Glenwood, IA US

We purchased Black Bear Construction Co. in Sep 2013 from Mike Barrett (its original owner and product designer). And we continue to offer all of Black Bear's jigs and products along with a few items.

Our goal is for every model railroad to have a Timber Railroad Bridge and/or Trestle regardless of scale. If not a Black Bear Construction Company bridge, then one from some other company. If not a timber bridge, then a steel or iron bridge. You get the idea: we want modelers to be building bridges.

Our primary goal is to provide hobbyists at all levels with durable, precision tools that will last a life time and allow the trouble-free construction of timber bridges and trestles. Our jigs allow the beginner to build that first timber trestle; and, they allow the master builder to concentrate on details and finishing rather than building jigs.
