There's always plenty of action wherever railways meet waterways. Here, you can
often find lift bridges, designed to move up to provide clearance for passing
ships. One of the most popular designs with railroad engineers is the Bascule
Bridge. Hinged at one end, the design opens like a jacknife. It requires less
space, has fewer moving parts and can be partially opened to clear vessels of
any size. It can also be raised and lowered quickly, making it the ideal choice
for busy rail lines. This working model captures the same intense operation and
fine detail found on actual bridges. Big enough to look right, small enough to
fit, it's equally at home handling big steam or modern double-stacks. The kit is
complete with detailed plastic parts that capture all of the rivets and
cross-sections of the steel work. A large "concrete" counterweight simulates the
massive lifting assembly of the prototype. Rounding out the details are the
Bridge Tender's Shanty high in the beams and a trackside interlocking tower.
Hidden inside is a reliable, low-speed motor that raises and lowers your bridge
like the real thing. Finished model measures: Bridge Span & Approach 34-1/4 x
3-1/4 x 11" 86 x 8.1 x 27.5cm, Interlocking Tower Baseplate: 2-1/8 x 3-3/4" 5.3
