The electric trains here picked up current from a third rail, but current collector shoes ran on the under surface of the conductor rail, whose top surface was covered by a wooden guard.
The following photos were taken on Dufaycolor, an additive process in which pictures are built up of red, green and blue dots (sound familiar?).
Double-deck train (a novelty to me, at that time).
