O Gauge Vertical Lift Bridge

One of the first projects of 2011 was the fabrication of an O gauge lift bridge for The Paradise & Pacific Railroad in McCormick Stillman Railroad Park, for their new O gauge layout display.  We also built an O  and G gauge over head train systems for the lobby area of the new model railroad building.

The McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is located in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, the park is the most unique of it’s kind in the country.  There are two historically-accurate scale-model train rides, a growing collection of full-scale railroad engines and cars, an original Scottsdale 1930s machine shop with all its tools and three genuine Santa Fe Railroad depots.  One of McCormick- Stillman Railroad Park’s most delightful— and unusual—features is the group of dedicated model railroaders who are members of four clubs “in residence” at the Park.

The model train layouts (O, HO, and N), which are operated by independent clubs are now housed the park’s new model railroad building.

Below you can see pictures of the Vertical Lift bridge for the P&P Railroad, O gauge Club and pictures of the Overhead train systems. located at the lobby of the new model railroad building.
