Here's a 12 minute video. It shows them actually moving cars.
Hi Bernd & all,
I'm betting that they were 3'6" gauge rather than 2' gauge based on the fact that there was a lot on underground mining gear built to that gauge and these units seem to have significant similarities to mining locos and/or coke oven hot cars (aka quencher cars).
Looking at your video, the centre cover between the tracks actually looks like an I Beam that covered the live rails at 2:04 in. You can see the live rail under the centre cover in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RJfnk2S330 at 1:29 in. This video also gives a whole new meaning to "riding the bucket".
