It's all static. I had my "thrill" with the operating bucket tram. The buckets are scratch, the tower is same, the large wheels are just plastic wagon wheels with grooves cut into them for the "cables". Still plenty to do with that area anyway.

Here's the "original" tram from the old Mogollon Railway. The buckets were made of brass, the cable was model ship rigging, and the drive was an old geared motor with "bull wheels" made from r/c airplane wheels with grooves cut into them
