Now try to figure out why the Aussie's water spins in the opposite direction when they pull the plug in the basin!

Coriolis Effect?

That's why I spend so much of my precious time on this forum—

It's educational!

Thanks for that tid-bit of knowledge, Rio Grande.

NDG, Thanks for the photos and especially the link to the Northern B.C. archives. I have not seen a lot of those photos before.

One that caught my eye was this, a tunnel clearance work trolly. I may have to build me one just so visitors to the layout will ask what the heck it is.

Ed, I saw that companies models at the last trainshow, they are quite something. I have some of Kanamodels structures and they are also nice. I think they went out of business though.

It looks like it would fall over!  Of course, in a tunnel, it ain't gonna fall to far!  Sideways, anyway.
