Newport Transporter bridge - motor room

The bright blue cabin on stilts houses the two 34 horsepower DC motors and the winding drum that hauls the gondola back and forth across the River Usk. The motor room is open to the public when the bridge is open for the 2013 season and is well worth a look.
