Just goes to show what you can dig up on Freerails when you have a nose around !
That sounds like a great birthday present from your Dad of the magazine subscription.
Even more exciting 'back in the day' before The Net made such a huge wealth of stuff available to railfans & modellers.
I think I must have got my copy of 'Pino Grande' around 1988 ...
... when I was a Member of 'The Slim Gauge Circle' in the UK ...
... having seen another Members copy at a meet.
I don't think I got much sleep that night, after returning from 'Motor Books' near Charing Cross station !
It's great to hear that the article in Model Railroader went down well & is remembered to this day !
I guess 'the cable' was somewhat unique, certainly an awesome sight & very C L to model.
Sadly though, we can't Post the scan you made from the original magazine, as it is the Copyright of Model Railroader.
I would love to see the scan you made of the article though Gerold, could you eMail me the file ?

AWESOME ! model again Bob !
