Romania narrow gauge
Shunting with a steel cable.

This is standard gauge but kind of a neat steam film. France early 1960s

Hey Fred,

LOVED the Romanian NG!!

What a great little loco!!

It was working quite hard on the slippery, grass-covered rails during the parallel-shunt with the steel cable. Nice to see that this sort of rustic scene is still happening somewhere in this crazy, modern, micro-chip world!

This one is a keeper! Grin

Thanks again, Fred!

Fascinating videos.

I love the overgrown track on the NG. Perfect for hiding that your using HO standard gauge track and not true narrow gauge track.

I thought exactly the same thing Hamish, when I saw the video. It occurred to me that you wouldn't even need to model the ballast, or the sleepers, which would be something of a plus...

Then, it also occurred to me that you couldn't represent the long grass actually moving, as per the prototype, and even if you did, you would very soon gum up the drive mechanism of the loco with poly (or whatever) fibres...

Oh, well....

I guess that some things must remain in 1:1 scale!

True, long grass is probably not doable, but low weeds over the sleepers could be possible, provided that it was well glued down.
