I'm quite lucky that this is only 5 minutes from me. That sun set really was lovely. Great pics jsp77, I really enjoyed wandering around here :)

Thank you very much for the photo: this picture is truly worth a thousand words. It is something I have not seen before. Did each of the chains attached to the steel rods work a rocker switcher - for up/down, across/back, along/back? And the one that is chain only? I love the bare wires for the traversing hoist. 440 volts AC? Some years ago I was illiciltly walking around a third rail tram or railway depot. To make serevicing easier, the tracks were several feet off the ground, and the live rails were within touching distance.
