|Howdy Rob-this is what I thought you had in mind:
TE work motor #X-2, shown at the Waco, TX yards. This photo from Texas Electric Railways Assn, in the Texas Electric Album by Rod Varney and the TX ERA.
What you see is all there is. It appears that an old Birney truck was used under this "thing" and the pole seems to be taken off and laid up against the back side. This would make a real critter but I don't know if an HO model could be made to run reliably, maybe O scale or better yet, large scale.
***The structure seen in the left hand background is one of the Waco suspension bridge towers, the bridge was built by the same guy who built the Brooklyn bridge. It is still there, across the Brazos River, I used to "haul a$$" across it in my MG when I was a teen but now it is a protected foot bridge under the "Historic landmark"
banner. So much for olden times***
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
