Again some great buses Jose.

I came this weekend through Wuppertal, Germany. They have a aerial tramway in the city. I took some photo's but they're not worth posting. But take a look at this website, there is some info of the old days of the tramway:

Keep finding these photos, thanks Jose.

Herb: You're right about that 1st photo which is strangely instantly semi-recognisable to me. Possibly Ireland (Eire, the Free State) - County Donegal Railways went in for 'money saving' contraptions like that, as did several other impoverished Companies.

I think I also recognise 1 or 2 Italian contraptions judging by their bodywork style.

To whom may be in possession of info: usually I post whatever I have/know about 'em rascals, but if somebody knows anything else please post it.
Alwin: I have a few pics of the Wuppertal system, but none of the older cars or construction era. Thanks!.
Michael: I believe the first one (Ford T) is a County Donegal, but not sure.
Jose.

Hello Jose,

The "atmosphere", the station roof awning, water-tank etc. look like Donegal but I don't know what location. I'm not a great expert on older Irish stuff.

Hi Jose !

British Rail need to get interested in those 'new-fangled' 1935 ...

... Insect repeling railbuses ...

... Just a few years earlier !

EVERY railbus should have a 'pest-repeller' for the summer !

Cheers

Si.

@Salada This one might be your kettle of fish. For plans and more photos, google for "La bete de Calvi"

Hi there

That top pic is from the Kent and East Sussex line and is pictured at Roveldon this is the line I am modeling in 4mm scale. I have a etch brass kit of this from wosely works here in the uk he does it in uk 0 gauge and I'm sure he can reduce it to 1:48 scale.

Cheers Dan
