    Good photo Chris, There's something nice about catenery operated models... provides more for the eye to see and looks complicated and intriguing with operating pantographs and all.
    Did you make the pilot yourself?
    You sure picked on a RR type that sortof leaves you to your own endeavours as I think very few manufacturers cater for traction.
    I admire your skills and courage of 'going it alone'.

    :eek: WOW! :eek:

    A real eye popper, Chris!

    It's just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    With your hands on your hips
    You bring your knees in tight

    At 44, it's hard to believe I have to explain to my kids {7 and 2} what a trolley is. Baltimore had them when I was an infant, then went to trackless trolleys up to the mid-60s. Great shot...:thumb:
