The old trolley has known rust. All of the wheels and pulleys turn freely. The trip mechanism spring is strong and works easily.
The only defect I see is 3 chipped spots out of one of the pulley wheelspic. The drop pulley engages and disengages with no problem.This pulley was designed to run on a wood beam similar to the 2x4 that I used for picture taking. The drop pulley trip would have been located on the bottom of 4x4. The trolleys running on rails do not have as much clearance between the pulley and the rollers. The trolley is 16 1/2" long, 5 1/2" wide and including the drop pulley 20 high.
