Jack,

Thanks for the kind words. Was in my early 20's when I built the diorama models. Could actually see without glasses and magnifiers :)

Took some liberty building the model. Combined the 2 cable system and carriage with the 4 wire towers and track. Its not exact, but gives the feel of the real system.

Funny thing happened at a convention. Had North and South Tower signs in front of each diorama. Each morning when I came into the contest room, the signs were switched. Finally a guy came by and said I had them backwards. Turned out to be Cliff Grandt. Told me he had ridden across on the carriage. Kept the signs that way from then on.
