The second one from Chile...THAT'S THE ONE! Looks like an old Ford pickup front and cab with some doors added on. Great stuff, as usual. Keep em' coming.

I love those two coaches powered by 4-2-0 locos! Someday I'd like to build one of those.

Happened to be searching for some slides I had taken of an interlocking tower on the B & O and came across these. The Strasburgh rail bus. Pictures are dated May 1976.





Of course then you always have some idiot hanging of the side trying to steal the show.;)

I don't think so, unless they changed the pilots too.

Don't think the design was so successful to justify making more than one. May have been involved in an accident. Jose.

Good point. Never thought about that.

Those little 4-2-0 steam coaches were common in OZ, at least there are articles every once in a while in NGDU (Narrow Gauge Down Under) about them and RTR models in On30 offered. When I can find it, there's an ancient photo of a "portage loco" in an old Abdill book I have...it appears to be an 0-4-0 with a flat car built on the rear. The thing was used in WA state I believe.

Just shows to go that "there's a prototype for anything"...
