Here are 3 more methods of light rail transport......







The generator drive is interesting, kick starter and fan for cooling.
(Actually, after another look, that is a reduction drive starter motor driving through
all those chains, so batteries in the boxes at the frame front and a 2nd power source?)
Would be a fun ride I think....
Enjoy, Ken..

Herb,

Now that you mention it, that third photo looks like a good work of photo shoping.

Ok, those pictures are more beleiveable since the shadows show up. The other one didn't show to many shadows and there was no dents in the carpet where the wheels sat. Still looks like some one pasted it into the picture though.

Did I ever tell you I'm a skeptic? :bg:

That Harley-powered mine car is too cool! I especially like the desk fan used to cool the engine.
