A Hair Raising Ride?

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

I would say that is almost a 'lift' as it is pulled by a cable and doesn't drive itself. Similar to cable operated wagon lifts, which is what I assume it was originally. No geared centre rail I notice.Hopefully it has suitable failsafe gear.

Narrow gauge Francophile interested in 1m, 60cm,50cm , 40cm and smaller gauges . Build in scales from 1/6th to 1/24th. Also 1/32nd and 1/35th using 16.5mm track to represent 50cm and 60cm gauges.
