If you like traction, gauntlet track, steep grades and lots of overhead wire this is your prototype, complete with twin pantographs:

You'd need to watch your step when getting out the back door :P

Pretty cool. Would cost a fortune in Kemtron wire hangers.

Only if you use Kemtron wire hangers

In 67 years, and I've lost count of how many layouts, I haven't bought one. Usually takes a visiting trolley/tram guy an hour or two to realize that there isn't any on the wire.

John- If you take a tumble getting off, no problem, car will be down shortly and you can give it another try.
