Would have to check, but for an operating model my memory wants to connect the name zelmeroz with the concept.

AFAIK there are interlocked signals and catchpoints installed on the Cane line.

Interesting idea.  Shouldn't be too hard to model.  But...why would they use a drawbridge crossing?  Wouldn't a diamonf crossing be easier?

Probably safer. Diamonds have to be crossed at restricted speeds.

If I remember correctly the crossing is on Bingera area of the main line of the North Coast railway. Queensland rail track is 3'6" and the cane track is 2' gauge. The loco in the video used to be a Queensland 3'6" gauge locomotive regauged to 2'.:2t:............Peter.
