Lifted from a thread in the VML site (merci!)

http://elsner.heim.at/GBH/Startseite.html

The build pics for this guy's line have to be seen to be believed - he has evidently built his line on a reinforced concrete baseboard!

Also, check out the aluminium sections that make up his bridge-work, too... very interesting...

Superb link Clive - Thanks

Incredible civil and mechanical engineering - puts my efforts to shame!

Love the development diary - that final rack section looks mighty steep. cyclops

Did you see the little rack loco, which is actually tilted up at the back so that it's level going up the incline?

Beautiful, in an ugly kind of way: http://elsner.heim.at/GBH/zahnrad_02.html

Edited to add: You have to watch the video on that page - amazing...

Sorry mate, should have posted a warning with it: "Caution: Will cause the viewer to lose all track of time, and in some cases the will to live!" Cool
