This thing is the lift portion of a Bascule Style draw bridge. The bridge portion can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1625399. Here is a video of it in operation: https://youtu.be/W1WaKlg1rCM There is an instructable covering assembly of the model here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Building-a-1160-N-Scale-Model-of-a-Bascule-Style-R/ Finally, there is an instructable covering the electronics here: http://www.instructables.com/id/ArduinoEasy-Driver-Animation-Control-Board/

This is a fully operating model and as such it is a complicated build. The entire model can be printed with a normal nozzle but some details will be missing. If you have a 250 micron nozzle you will be better off as the details will be sharper. Note that files with the suffix "-250" have extra detail for that size of nozzle.

I model in full scale and the STL files are exported directly from the full scale model. They will need to be reduced to 0.625% of their current size to print at N-Scale!
