I'm looking for a N Scale version similar to this: http://www.cmrtrain.com/lift.html

Is there anything currently available?

Thanks for the help

The only one I know of is the old Faller/AHM Bascule bridge, which is a much smaller design.

CMR seems to do stuff in HO and then N - so why not write them and ask for them to offer it in N scale.

OOOohhhhhh....that'd be sweet to have THAT in N-scale. Any chance of taking the aforementioned Faller/AHM Bascule bridge and, using the mechanism, expound on the span and associated counterweight to "beef up" the design and scope? Just thinking out loud...using my hands of course to transpose those outbursts in to text...kinda like keyboard tourets...

I think Pete built his own. Maybe he can give you some pointers.

That is pretty darn close to what I'm looking for even down to the double tracking. Thanks for the help!!

Thanks for the tip - I've seen his layouts on Ebay periodically.
