A tour of the FCPyF

With the lighting set up I have made a short video of the layout. The southbound mail is at Rio Paleta, this train will reverse at the junction. The relieving engine is waiting on the low level line and will back onto the train when it arrives.

The mine tram is fishing line powered. Pulling the line by hand sends the tram into the adit, a counterweight both keeps the line taut and returns the tram to the surface.
