My name is Dave. I’m 73 and still play with toy trains. S gauge.
So impress with your site that have decided to discontinue my subscription to train magazines.
Kindly allow me to introduce you to the ITARR:
ITA is the name selected because it resides IN THE ATTIC.
As a test, I will try to show a few pictures of the bridges on the ITA.
The first bridge is my effort to represent the bascule bridge. It is controlled by a motor too small for the job and thus the need for two sets of counter weights. One set of weights to help the deck go up the other set to eases the pain of going down.
The second bridge swing up to open from the right side The third bridge swings open like a gate when needed. All threes bridges operate with the track wiring in tact from scrap material that I was able to locate without cost.
I thought Dave’s layout looked fantastic – and no wonder the kids the love the bridge, I did too. It’s funny how one feature of a layout really can transform it. More pics please, Dave!
Dave also had some very kind words about the Beginner’s Guide. I’ll shall keep adding to it.
That’s all this time folks. Don’t forget the ebay cheat sheet. Still going strong.
