Thread: Question about building an N-Scale Bascule Lift Bridge

  1. Default Question about building an N-Scale Bascule Lift Bridge

    Hi everyone, new to the forum here so I was hoping someone can help with some tips.

    Are there any rolling lift bridges available from any N Scale retailer, (Kato, Atlas, Faller, etc)???

    If not, does anybody have advice on how to make a manually operated (not motorized) two track rolling lift like this one here?

    Man I know there was one made a longggggggggg time ago I want to say by AHC or something like that best bet is hit the swapmeets everyonce in awhile you'll see it on flea bay and you'll pay dearly for it .
    Out of the names listed I think Faller would be your best bet,good luck keep me posted.
