Anybody who is modeling a small mine should find this interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=du-n0E3i648&feature=endscreen

Great video, Dave. Very inspiring for someone who would search a subject for 1:35 mining modelling, I guess. And this fragile bridge in the beginning of the video, plus the scenery around, is a marvelous subject.

Neat video, amazing how they righted the cars and they landed on the tracks.

Very nice video- I enjoyed it, although if you really wanted to discuss OSHA getting upset, there was a video posted in here a while ago showing a man manually touching a wand to an overhead electric wire to get his tram going down the track.

I liked the rails going across a small suspension bridge. Must have been a section that's no longer used, as there was no video of a train crossing it.

Another great video. The scenery near 6:00 and the little halt at 6:22 are very inspiring.

Another link that some may find interesting. A Flickr album on Namtu mining line in Burma (posted on Westlake forum by member narrowgauger).

Frederic, WOW, all kinds of interesting things to model and use for reference. Rail truck, weathered buildings (metal and wood), shop made cars, and much more. This is great.
I scratch built a wood outside frame boxcar that looks real similar to the one in here, even the weathering.A small section of the second outside frame box car is my avitar.
