Specific Item Information: Stationary bridge kit (non operating) features laser cut acrylic parts, tab and slot construction and detailed instructions. A vertical lift bridge has a span which rises vertically while remaining parallel with the track. The counterweights on a vertical lift bridge only have to be equal to the weight of the bridge, whereas on a bascule bridge counterweights must weigh several times more than the span being lifted. Therefore heavier materials can be used on the deck of the lift bridge which makes it especially well suited for heavy railroad use. Size: 2.25" W x 16" L x 7.5" H Plus two 5" approach bridges for a total length of 26"

Road Name History:
Railroad structures include but are not limited to stations, depots, yard offices, interlocking towers and tanks. A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

It generally consists of at least one track-side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "stops" or, in some parts of the world, as "halts" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses, trams or other rapid transit systems.
