Yes, finding either is difficult. There is currently one MTH one on ebay for $80 plus $15 shipping and tax and ross has the Z stuff one on there site for $170. Which is about double the price of the MTH. I'm wondering if the sensors and the ABS construction is worth it over the die cast and not sensor equipped MTH one. The sensors don't do much since I'll wire them to my switches anyway.

Die cast for half the price of plastic seems like a no brainer.

I'm sure a portion of the ZStuff is the integrated sensors. Your not interested in the sensors so what's the point of spending money on them.

I have an Mth bridge and I'm very happy with it. It's a nice sturdy piece and if you have gorilla hands like me you won't break it.

Think my decision is easy. Mth. Now to find it for an alright price.

The MTH signal bridge is a copy of a PRR Lines West bridge and used about Pittsburgh and all tracks going west.  The Plasticville bridge is a good scale model of the PRR Lines East bridge (if one removes the vertical members in the bridge truss).  You can get working signal heads from Custom Signals or MTH.  The Custom Signals line has been sold to Atlas and the excess inventory is for sale on ebay.  People of spliced the Plasticville bridge to span as many as 4 tracks.
