You can see in the last picture how the bridge hinges. It is actually 2 x 4 construction with Plastistruct side pieces to represent steel construction. The beveled track ends are shown a part and not touching to illustrate how the track current is transferred. The track on the bridge is wired as well as each end of track leading up to it. When lowered, the beveled ends make good solid contact. There are guides on the landing side to make sure of proper track alignment when the bridge is lowered. There was a lot of trial and error involved in that project!
Wow, that is way cool. I like your out-of-the-box thinking! Very ingenious. Thanks for sharing that.
I've been wanting to ask: did you prepare the edges
of the ceiling tiles for your "bluffs" in any particular fashion? After breaking them to size, how did you shape them? Knife? Sanding? Other method?
