I am looking for the name of a piece. I haven't seen this piece before, but it's a perfect match for micro scale Dutch bridges. It's a piece with 3 small bars, adjoined to each other. The bottom bar has 2 larger circles on the side. I think its size is about 1x3.

I have added 2 pictures of it:

    Just went through the Bars, Minifig Utensils, Window Glass and Shutter, Fence, and Door categories on BrickLink and couldn't find a match. Do you have a link for where you found the images? Dec 28, 2022 at 17:06
  • I had better luck looking through the "miscellaneous" section of the LDraw parts database :-) Dec 28, 2022 at 17:14
  • Apparently it does not exist in white! The pictures are probably renders, not actual builds. @IvanSanchez found the part, apparently it's an oldskool part that's only available in light grey

That's part 969 Trailer Stand.

Apparently it appeared only in (old) light grey in sets from the early 70s, and not in white as your picture suggests.

    Great find! The pictures must be renders then, too bad. But I can see they are still for sale, so maybe I'll just make the bridge grey then!

    Yeah, grey should be just fine for the counterweights of bascule bridges :-) Be aware that old (pre-2000) grey is not the same as modern bley, anyway. Dec 28, 2022 at 21:06

    I'm not convinced the part is white in the op's pictures. All those light parts might very well be grey (possibly a mix of old grey and new bluish grey) - white balance can do that to a picture. Dec 29, 2022 at 8:16

    I doubt that, since 3024pb010 1x1 plate with black square pattern only exists in white. Dec 29, 2022 at 12:03
  • OP's picture is 3D render, not a photo. 3D models could use non-existing colors. @IvanSanchez it won't stop you from using whichever color you want for that piece while creating 3D model.
