    Gabriel and his people have done a good job with this. What is not mentioned on this page is that Gabriel's workshop also rebuilt the carriages.

    Sadly I never got down there to film that operation in steam days.

    Thankfully other did.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I had no idea there was any footage of this system or these locos.
