Life is just so complicated these days !
The old Tri-ang catenary was just so simple & well made ... Those were the days !
You don't have to be Einstein to have a bit of operating catenary !
What electrical knowledge ?
Just solder a wire to it from your resistance controller !
Making it just needs the right materials & sensible construction and installation techniques.
It aint rocket-science ... But EXPERIENCE not TALK counts for everything.
Anyone who wants the top dope from the horses mouth on skyhook wiring...
...go to Herbies house !!
Herbs Thread in the Trolley Forum is THE LAST WORD on catenary construction.
Adapt & adopt your own ways as well of course.
But if Herb say use this wire, then use that wire.
If Herb tells you how to make an effective pole/mast, then make it like that.
If he says stand on one leg singing Rule Britannia with a cork in one ear, do that as well !
Dummies, knicker elastic & DelTang are for the birds baby !
Get that catenary JUICED UP !
Or just sell all your electric-locos & get a steam-engine or something.
I guess you could chop off the pantos & pretend they were diesels maybe.
LET THERE BE WIRES !
