I am having trouble getting the track on the bridge get close to the track on the land. When I space the 2 tracks so that the bridge operates smoothly, without any rubbing of the 2 tracks when I raise and lower the bridge, the space needed to do this makes a large separation and the train has to be run slowly over this section because of the size of the separation.
So what kind of hinges should I be using that might allow me to have the 2 tracks closer together?
This is my first layout in 50 years so I know I am missing various methods of doing things. Would appreciate all the help I can get.
