With apologies to Star Trek!
This video, hi-jacked from the 2mm Association site, is just one incredible bit of model making. And I’m not (for once) talking about the fine scale. Shunting using a tractor – whatever next – working horses!!!!?!!!!
Shunting Tractor at Yeovil Town.
For many years, Laurie Adams has been constructing a model of Yeovil Town. Some of the sidings are impractical and off-limits for locomotives, and shunting was undertaken by a modified tractor. So, never short of wanting a challenge, Laurie set out to make a tractor work to perform the shunting operations.
The video below is about 20 minutes long and explains the construction and shows the operation of this amazing vehicle.
It would be very easy to get depressed by this level of skill, and take up knitting (apart from the fact that I’d be no good at it). So I’m impressed and inspired. Hope you are too?
