    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...

    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.

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

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

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

    WOW,

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

    I wonder if the drivers nickname is sparky?

    Who needs pantographs?

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

    Anyway, enjoy or be appalled!
