Fourteen listings showing on Ebay. Search for 'Catenary' on the 'trains/railway models section.

They did, but many years ago. There were two versions - pressed out 'catenery' in several set lengths, followed by a simplified system in 1961 which used a simple overscale single wire held 'tramway' style to the masts by plastic clips. Very simple to put up and worked quite well, but they stopped making it around 1971. There was a brief but limited revival 1988-1998, it was little publicised, alas.

I don't think that 'catenary' is an actual word. I punch it into word when doing articles on railways and the spell checker doesn't recognise it however you spell it!

Sorry for the mis-spelling.

In my experience Microsoft products will recognise any technical term associated with computers but few with any other trade or speciality, so one has to 'teach' the wordchecker. If at any point a Microsoft product had been fitted to a catenary I would expect it to recognise the word instantly!

QUOTE Have you never heard of hyperbolic cosines?

Sounds like exaggeration to me. I'll stick to the discrete cosine transforms in my camera images.
