Operating Rolling Lift Bridge with the optional motor kit
Available in single and double track versions.
Our model is based on a bridge built in the early 1900's and was designed by the Scherzer Rolling Lift Bridge Co.
The bridge has a counterweight and raises with a rolling lift motion that moves the bridge up and out of the way.
The rotation axis occurs at the pinion point which is located along a toothed rack.
By pulling the pinion gear horizontally along the rack the bridge is rolled back and lifted up.
The bridge rolls along the bottom on a segmented girder. The curved part of the girder has guide pockets that roll across guide blocks.
This keeps the bridge aligned and from slipping.
Our bridge has a 75' (10.25") lift bridge span and a 30' (4.0") fixed bridge span.
The total length is 110' (15") including the abutments.
The single track bridge requires a space 15" long and 3" wide.
The double track bridge requires a space 15" long and 5" wide.
The distance from the bottom of the base to the bottom of the track is 3.5".
The motor kit is sold separately.
