First run outdoors for 2012. I added a new natural rock tunnel & hooked up the pond pump for the water feature under the bridge. Enjoy the video train friends!

On September 11, 2010, I took some photos inside the gearbox.
When it came time to raise or lower this bridge, the bridge tender, probably located in a long gone shed on the main pier, would have turned on two electric motors inside the gearbox. When the motors were operating and turning the gears between them, the operator would have engaged a clutch, which would have transmitted power to the gears which drove the pinions, which turned the racks, raising or lowering the bridge.
