Cumbres & Toltec in S Colorado/N New Mexico (was featured in Indiana Jones movie) Also Druango and Silverton Both are Narrow Gauge period equipment. .
An idle thought, does anyone know of any relatively short US branch lines that are very interesting in operation and high in scenery? I was thinking of something like the new york high level. Either today or past, its all good.

I don't see switch heaters which is odd, though perhaps they're electric and I just don't see the elements.
The Alaska RR uses ballast regulators with some modifications for this function.

When it got really cold, the switches in Holland froze. The ones in Germany did not.
Holland is now contemplating converting to gas-fired heaters.
Of course, I don't know how strong the Dutch heaters are.
Wouldn't an upgrade to more power electric heaters also do the job?
