A bit of "puerile banter" in the offing.

The topic heading is the question.

Has anyone seen a grid-bridge or knows what it is?

cheers

Geez Ernie, ya gettin desperate, time to hit the road mate. I figure we'll cross paths on Monday morning, you en route to Inverell and we en route to Birdsville. Incidentally, if you're planning to camp at Copeton Dam, just stay put for a while, I think Anthony is planning to bring you some fresh supplies over Easter.

Ernie,

A google search result is too easy ....

So I'm going for ....

Is it the part of a radio valve that joins the cathode to the grid ?

Or maybe ...

The high resistance part of an electronic valve that allows excessive charge on the grid to escape ??

Oh I know !! You've invented a thing that allows cattle to cross at grids when necessary ! (BovineSmirk)

Ernie,

Maybe too simplistic ...

Are you talking about a river grid bridge ...as in the one that crosses the Burdekin River at Blue Range ???

Spot on Anthony. The one I saw was over the Belyando River north west of Clermont QLD. The deck is one long grid of rail iron single lane. The signposts at the end actually call it a GRID BRIDGE. We bush camped on the river bank that night and saw several deer wandering about. Deer are pretty tough and adaptable animals as the country there is tough in the dry times.
