Another internet find, which happens to be a REAL steampunk:

According to the short caption with the pic, it was discarded because "management didn't like beef delivered right on their laps". Jose.

Looks like something H G Wells would think up.

More like Jules Verne. Jose.

That looks like it would be fun to model!

Any particular reason for 5 spokes instead of 4 or 6 I wonder?

The wheels seem to be stamped (inside and out) sections. I guess that 5 spokes make them less prone to flexing. But I have been wrong before. Just ask my wife. Jose.

"Funnier yet to explain at an NMRA contest." Jose.

All you need is the picture.  I have judged at NMRA contests for over 30 years.  If you have the picture or prototype drawing to show it conforms to the prototype then there is no problem.

If you wish to build something that is not prototype all you need is some drawings you have done and an explanation of what it is based on your needs.

I didn't say it can't be explained at a contest, but can you imagine the raised eyebrows when you try to enter what is basically a steam-powered couch?. Jose.
