Fascinating stuff J.R.
The former Indiana Central University (I believe it is now the University of Indianapolis) used to offer a course called Ferroquinology. I believe it was the study of railroad history and model railroading.
A model railroad club has used this congested industrial area of Menasha, Wisconsin, as a prototype for a model railroad layout. They have a working model of this swing bridge, and they also have the Tayco Street Bascule Bridge represented as a part of the model. (There are also photos of the Tayco Street Bridge model are that page.)
I received the kind permission of Mr. Bill Wilder, who took the photos, to reproduce his photos of the model railroad on the Bridge Hunter website.
Be sure to check out the photos of this enchanting model and, as you're looking at these photos, remember that this layout is in Great Britain!
