This link was posted on one of the yahoo groups I belong to. Since this topic comes up from time to time I thought some may like to view it:

Man-that is cool as $%%^&*(!!! It could only be better if it showed a pole road Climax or some funky steam Gyppo lokie. Wonder if any of those Yahoo guys know how such could be powered...with real wooden poles for track?

Very nifty video. I thought the POV shots were just great!

RC with on-board batteries is probably the only way. Jose.

A quickie here for you mining guys although it might have other applications as well.

Just finished putting down some Home Depot pelletized lime on the lawn, but saved out a cup as it is the perfect size, shape and color for ore for the tip cars from my mine. Great stuff and it's even residue from a prototype mine. $4 for 40 pounds, so you either need a really big mine or lots of friends. Check it out. Unfortunately, I've discovered (and some of you as well) that my camera isn't up to the task of close-ups so I can't post a shot of it. As soon as I get back from the camera store, I'll post a pic.
