Albanian lignite mine

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.

G'day Chris
Thought that you might like to know that the clip has been featured here before -----
http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t= ... pantograph
But that was a long time ago :shock:
May 2009 :!:
But I still have the video on file and the urge to have a go at it ----- just have to find the time.
Cheers

Yeah, but its good enough to feature it again.
Not everyone will have seen the 2009 posting.
And even if you did, it was so good you will probably want to view it again :P

Just out of interest, how would you do the sparks on the power wire / hand held pantograph thingy?

Always worth another viewing. Wonderful to see how things are done without the benefit of Elf and Safety.

This has already been on the site before, I'm sure, but quite a civilised contrast. http://youtu.be/BofxHq7RkWk

I have already done some experimenting with that :-----

(The video right near the bottom of the page.)
Although not quite the same --- it could be something similar
