Road Name History:
Bridges and Piers are an important component of transportation.

A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, usually something that can be detrimental to cross otherwise. There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed and anchored, the material used to make it, and the funds available to build it.

Brand/Importer Information: Central Valley was first established in 1947 by George Hook; he was first known for his wooden freight car kits, called “Old Timers”. The fine ply-wood for the freight cars was imported from Switzerland. About 1951 is when Central Valley was best known for their trucks (wheels), up until about 1985. In 1978 Jack Parker bought Central Valley and made it a family own and operated company, which his youngest son (of four children) Jeffrey Parker is the sole owner of today. From 1987 to 1997, Patricia Parker continued truck production on a limited special order basis. Central Valley is now a two person operation; from the raw plastic for the Truss Bridges and ties (among other wonderful items) to the hand packaging of all the orders. Central Valley is dedicated to prototypical accuracy for their customer’s satisfaction. We are model railroaders, for model railroaders. Many railroad museums have our products in their model railroad layouts. Our goal here at Central Valley is to expand our HO and N scale supply in the near future.
