Water feature Harbor; with trap door; using my LIONEL Swing bridge

We are trying to plan my harbor water feature. But we also need part of it to be a trap door, not a pop out, that will swing down and out of the way, so I can get into the layout for any problems, like derailments. We are installing my LIONEL swing bridge to this situation.  Any ideas as to   putting the bridge down on the bottom of the river bed first, or on top of the water once poured? When we can find a sea wall, I am thinking the sea wall will hide the trap door on three sides, and the bridge will hide the seam/crack from view.  Somehow a LIONEL tug will be nestled in a small slip as well. HELP!

I think you’re going to need a big hole to get up past that bridge. 

Is this a big enough hole?   Really now. The bridge will be in place on the mainline, the trap or swing door will be after the bridge and swing either to the side, or towards the back in this picture. The seam, if there is one, will be hidden by the bridge structure when looking at it from the location in the picture.

Anyone with ideas, who did a drop in a water scene??

I took it to mean the bridge was on the door.
