That cool Albanian railway was the subject of many posts on one of the Yahoo groups I lurk upon. At one time, there as a sort of "contest" to see who could (or would) build a model of "old sparky" complete with the guy holding the "pole" against the wire and the sparks flying around. I thought about how it could be done and I believe one fellow actually built a model which has a fiber optic "pole" which flashes at will and replicates the real thing. Just amazing. That single point switch is one thing...but "old sparky" is something else.

Woodie
