Product Type:Kit
Bob believes this to be an Altoona Models turntable kit, or possibly a company called Berkshire Models. The bridge was of a 125-foot long prototype. The kit came with laser-cut wood interlocking interior pieces to build up the shell, laser-cut acrylic plastic for the sides, and high-quality plastic castings to overlay the acrylic for the outside pieces. Basswood completed the ties, tower, and railings.
