I had come across that video too, looks like a really fascinating railway with some very interesting stock. If you take Wikipedia's word for it as well as the state owned stock, each household on the island owns their own 'tram' as the line is the main access to the main land. All you need is a moped license :eek:

Not a Model but an interesting vid of the great freeze of 1963, this may have been linked before butvthis is of interest as it is has material today telling ofvthe impact on wildlife. Many of the words and descriptions of the suffering have much in common with what is occurring just now with both weather and CV19. But the real interest is costs, what they describe as Millions back then is pretty well Billions now. How inflation has raged in the years between.

Found this one today about Severn Lamb, knew that they did quite a few things including Steamers for Euro Disney however the depth of their products certainly is much more than I realised. Well worth a look through the vid and their site.
Vid below.

Just found this classic Pathe on YT, a Col Stephens Railcar no less even more interesting as it was filmed on the Headcorn Tenterden section, a bit that will sadly unlikely ever re-open unlike the rest of the line. Well worth a watch.

Must be weird having the steering column but no wheel, health and safety obviously not high up on the list though
