Quite a few years ago, there was an article in Garden Railways magazine about a "Walking Man". I don't recall the author of the article and who the modeler was. But whomever it was spent time working out how to build a scale man that actually pushed a mining cart on a track. I've tried to locate the video on Youtube, I know it's there, to no avail.

Now, the real genius would be to animate that horse to pull the skips !
Not exactly what you had in mind.. BUT! :eek::eek::eek:

Is this the one you are referring to? The Walking Man
That's the one I had in mind. Only caught a brief glimpse though, for some reason McAfee doesn't like the page and tells me only to go there at my peril!
