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...

I love it:rah:

I've been toying with the idea of taking a WWI truck and converting it to a rail truck.

Somewhere in here someone posted a photo of a German tank on rails.

Probably the Soviet Army had a T-28 put on rails. I have not found any photos of the original, but there is an Ukrainian 1:72scale kit for it.And of course the Krauts had one, too. Interesting enough that one is a captured French reconaissance armoured vehicle. And I think we had this one already.

Hi all,

The Australian War Memorial website has photos and film of "Jeep Trains" that operated in Borneo See https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C200374  For more photos, use "Jeep Train" in the search field.


These conversions were done by Australian Army engineers in the later part of WW2. The Borneo campaign is one of the lesser known amphibious operations of WW2.
