3..2..1..Lift-out! Excellent tip Miles that I'll be employing on my layout, thanks!

Alternate works fine but not primary.

Although I thought it was informative, the video would have been a lot better if it would have been a complete how to segment actually building an operating swinging lift out bridge. :/

Thanks for the feedback. However, Back to the Workbench is intended to be short-and-sweet tips deliberately by design. Not every video can be a 30+ minute monster. The best is a mixture of short tip videos along with longer videos. We're light on short tip videos, so we want to add more of these shorties too, so be ready for that.

Some people tell us our videos are too long and have asked us for short-and-sweet videos as well. 

You can't please everybody, so there will be some of each - long and short - as we go along.

Great tip Miles! It will keep it in mind for any future lift out.

I do have a question. (Maybe a future BttB short segment?) How will you deal with the piano hinge and scenery? Not sure how to hide something like that.
