Just managed to upload the video so that it behaves like a proper widescreen view:

A couple of days ago I got a 'wrist-slap' email from Mr You-Tube, stating that dire consequences would ensue if I didn't attend to the small matter of some copyrighted music in the video I posted. So I took it down.

This morning I purchased some pukka royalty-free music from Jono Slatter at Sounds Visual , and reworked the video. I have also amended the credits accordingly.

In short, we ditched Vivaldi and threw our lot in with Mr Mozart instead. Also, I've uploaded it to my blip.tv site instead.

I'm a Vivaldi man myself!

And what more fitting for Garden Railways than the "Four Seasons" rabbit

Nice. Is that Peco rail as it looks nice and fine compared to 332.

And there was I expecting to see some 1938 stock hurtling down the pier........

John, it will doubtless be small comfort to you, to know that I share your disappointment that the video did not cover that particular 'Ryde ride'. Apparently, after the last of the Terriers/O2's departed the line (albeit temporarily) they knocked down some of the road-bridges over the line, only to rebuild them so that the loading gauge fitted the 'new' stock (ie the old London Underground Tube stock that is still in use to this day) more closely. Net result: the plans to reopen the line to Ryde so that the IoW Steam preservation boys can run on it, means they will have to terminate at Ryde St. Johns (site of the old maintenance depot). Another brilliant piece of forward thinking! If only they had left it alone, what an absolute GEM of a tourist attraction they would have had now...

It is indeed Peco rail. There are a selection of still shots from the day, some of which will probably show that to better effect, on my Fotopic account at http://clivesgscalerailways.fotopic.net/c1740088.html

Ah, but if my memory serves me right (and it usually doesn't) then if the line could accommodate a Terrier as far as St John's Road, then there's only the "tunnel" section to the Esplanade left. Now I recall that there was a flooding issue in these tunnels, which wasn't too much trouble with steam trains, but could be problematical with the third rail - I believe that the floor of the tunnels were raised to alleviate these problems (and probably ease the grades as well), which reduced the loading gauge to that of the smaller tube trains.

That could well be the issue - I recall overhearing a discussion about this on the open day, and I seem to remember there was mention of bridges and tunnels as a barrier to the reintroduction of steam locos. Personally, I'd love to see that happen one day - but I guess it would need a serious and probably prohibitive amount of money to alleviate all those problems. Oh well, one can always hope I suppose.

Interestingly, I am working in Gosport at the moment, with a lady whose father is a volunteer on the line. She was telling me that even going up to Ryde St Johns will present challenges, such as safety issues around running together with the tube stock, not to mention the need for a passing loop (possibly at Brading) and some station changes to accommodate both types of train. Good luck to them, I hope it all works out. I haven't been there for a while actually, I might try and get back there next year some time.

There are always going to be safety issues when you have an apparently innocuous spare rail laying on the ground which will happily grab you and then burn you to death if you are careless enough to come into contact with it. When I was involved in a small way with return of steam on BR (A4 Sir Nigel Gresley Marylebone to Stratford) the thought of steam ever returning to the Southern was a very big no no for that reason.

Clive

I notice a RIGI cablecar crossing in the video. By chance did you take any pics or have details of the operating system or terminal structures.

I'm embarking on a project to get one to cross my little lake.

Is it possible to put me in direct touch with the layout's owner?

I will try and have another sift through my other pics of the day (the ones that didn't make the cut for the Fotopic gallery) to see what others I have of that bit of his line. On page 2 of my Fotopic collection for this line, there are a couple of general shots of that bit of the line (Pics 30 and 33):

http://clivesgscalerailways.fotopic.net/c1740088_25.html

I will also ping the owner an email to see if he can shed any further light for you on that. I will refer him to the email address on your website 'contact' page, or if you want you can PM me with an alternative.

Also, as promised earlier here are some other pics of the cable car setup from that day. Not sure if they are of any use to you Brian, but here's hoping:

Thanks Clive
The pics are useful. Brian P has also emailed me with some tech data, and I'm now in direct contact with him - Great!

thanks again
