To those of us who can't make a decision about a track setting,

moving track work around IS prototypical:

Thanks for posting the video, I haven't seen it before.

I live twenty five miles from the coal mines,
and saw a lot of the coal trains when they were operating.

They have been replaced by conveyor belts, and one mine has closed.
It was a unique railway and had an extensive track system and workshop area.

Like many railway systems it's now gone, apart from a couple of bridges.

That catenary was mounted on the side of the track,
for the electric locos that hauled the coal cars.

They had a side mounted pantograph to contact the wire.

The side mounting was only used where the shovel loaders were,
to get clearance when loading.
