That is great Gordon! How many of those Fordson's did you make? I like that paint scheme a lot.

Gordon, you rascal! You've been building Fordson models and keeping them secret! Most satisfactory. -- Russ

Gordon,

wonderful work, fantastic aging and beautiful images of your miniaturization of reality! Smiley I like it much!

Here is a different kind of monorail, maybe one of you wants to rebuild the vehicle on a smaller scale.

Interesting to see that the monorail was made in England. Here is another link to what Road Machines (Drayton) built -

Used internationally at over 800 sites and now forgotten.

Thanks for the link!

Davej and Ian,

thanks you for the links!

I think it's great that there are people who restore these witnesses and preserved it for posterity. Lots of them unfortunately are becoming increasingly rare.
There are so many beautiful projects that would be great to become miniaturized. Only our time has finally. Sad

Here are same more links for monorail-pictures und videos.
