Hello Narrow Minded people...

Just got tipped off to this museum/railroad in the Czech republic by a contact in England. I know nothing more than what you can see on the website, but makes me want to visit. Since it is only 400miles from me maybe I will make it...just like I will make it to visit you guys, sooner or later, just takes time.

Thor,

Great web site!  Even though I can't read the text, the photos in the "Fotogalerie" section say it all.  Some of the scenery looks just like Maine as the line runs through pine forests.

And check out their version of a 2-foot gauge tamper - one half of a mainline tamper system.  It uses concrete blocks to counterbalance the tamper system; a crane picks the whole thing up, turns it around, and then you tamp the other rail.

Based on very limited experience, I'd say the Matisa tamper seems pretty versatile.  The Tallyln Railway has one that is regaugable.  And check out that crane!

Home builds are always neat but FYI, Plasser-Australia makes a 2 foot tamper and other MOW equipment for the AUS sugar cane RR's.
