Scale Pontoon Float Bridge
Although this Pontoon Float Bridge has no specific prototype, it can be used in many locations and on many types of waterways from ocean harbors to large rivers to large lakes. It would look at home on any era On30 train layout where your On30 railcars need to be transported across a waterway.
This bridge is designed to be used with the Frenchman River Model Works On30 2 Track Carfloat kit. This wooden float bridge kit comes equipped with 2 highly detailed hand winch kits for cinching the carfloat securely up to the bridge. These kits will add great detailing and action possibilities to any layout.
Additional hand winch kits are available from Frenchman River Model Works.
