  • Who needs pantographs?

    Not sure whether this should go in the Electro Critters thread.

    Anyway, enjoy or be appalled!

    WOW,

    OSHA would have a field day if this were in the US.

    I wonder if the drivers nickname is sparky?

        Well, it works! I just hope the guy doesn't stand up too fast. That could be an enlightening experience!

          It is really incredible. And it was not much more than ten years ago...

            Talk about an accident waiting to happen.

                A nice exemple for a narrow gauge layout. A critter with a Preiser and an flickering LED on the end of the stick

                  Geeze ... I don't know if I'd want that job. On the other hand it may be safer then some of the other jobs options around there. Did anyone catch that switch? A single rail point - I've never seen that modeled.

                    In 1995 I visited the last trolley line in Changchun in Manchuria; the equipment was the gleanings from a much larger network and not well maintained. I have a slide (but no functional scanner) of a failed car being brought back to the barn empty, with two women at the controls and a guy sitting on the roof holding the trolley pole up against the wire. No sparks, no odor of barbecue, but I still wouldn't like the job...
