|Howdy Helmut, not shown is the cable & hook.
The hook simply hooks up to the knuckle coupler on the car and the winch hauls the cars (2 at a time) up the incline.
No, I didn't make this to work, those things were in my previous life...now I use imagination.
The mill/smelter only has room for 2 cars at a time anyway.
Besides this takes more time in the operation scheme and in my model world, there are no time constrictions.
I did have 2 crewmen stationed on the incline, one holding the cable & hook,
but the local monster cat got on the incline and "scared them away!"
The missing crewmen are shown on the incline track before they took off to parts unknown.
Here is a view of the "car stop" on the incline.
Using a ground throw, the "stop" is raised to keep the cars from rolling down,
and then lowered to allow them to be moved.
And here is the monster cat, napping by the incline. BAD KITTY!
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
