Model T, REO, Maxwell...those are what I like.

I had a 70 Caddie once...nice ride and could get up & move!
And a 68 Buick Electra...a real lead sled.

Woodie

Lest I forget , here's one for that guy who doesn't like trains ( and for Si, of course )I play around with These when I got fed up with my Little Trains. (Just been driven nuts by that silly WIN10 Feature of automatically 'correcting' words to upper-case, so I leave it as it is )

Taxi's?

Smart move Helmut! When those little guys grow up, they might be able to bring in some family income.

I like the blue paint job on the little rail truck:thumb:

Looks like the engine is offset.  Can't be more than 10 feet long.

@Michael
No, that's an optical deception. I know the original (30" NG), and the motor sits in the center, there being two small doors right and left in the driver's cab. The room is so tight, that you normally leave them open when driving it during fair weather. It's not so comfortable when it rains and the wind comes from aft, as there's no rear wall to protect you from the elements. Of course the closed cab catching the wind acts as a sort of sail then:)

Helmut :  Your blue railmotor has a distinctly Italian NG look; nice !.

Are you expecting night time running? (red/white 'headlights').

@Michele,
on that line  it is mandatory for all self-propelled vehicles to be equipped with proper lighting. There is running at dusk and there are lots of unprotected grade crossings. That particular critter also serves in MoW.

I consider this the ultimate railroad modified vehicle, a WW2 Jeep with railroad wheels!

I took this shot at the US Army Transportation Museum at Ft Eustis, VA this spring...
