Racquette Lake Navigation Company - Front View
SKU: 10999

The Racquette Lake Navigation Company is a two-track car slip and apron that allows for loading and unloading of rail cars on to car floats and ferries. It is based on a North American prototype that was still in use through the 1970's. It creates an off-layout transfer point without a large investment of layout real estate. The Control House and Towers house the mechanism that allows the Apron to be raised and lower to accommodate different ship and tide heights as well as the ability to float with the movement of the water. Most of the work in raising and lowering the front of the Apron is done by the two Counter Weights enclosed in the Towers. The other end of the Apron is supported by the Apron Base which is intended to be built into the shore scenery on your layout or module. Completed model measures 4 1/2" X 4 1/2".
