It's not Bennings' Railplane, but Pullman's.

There is a lot more interesting stuff at this site. Just follow the links next to "home". Jose.

My IPad won't let me post photos on this website but if you follow the link below you'll find a Mane 2 foot rail bus photo on a postcard. I think it looks pretty darn cool.

Before anybody thinks that I ran out of them, here are some more:
1937 DR open coach


1937 NH steam railcar


Power truck from the above railcar


1940 Sewell railcar


1947 "streamlined" French railcars. Ever seen a jalousie-type windshield?.


1950 Mack


 1950 DB convertible railbus


From the Isle of Sylt. I find it real neat:


1959 SNCF. Jouef made (makes?) an HO scale version.


1967 LIRR railbus


And tha't all folks!. More next time. Jose.

I love that 1940 Sewell. There's some real craftsmanship just in the "cowcatcher". The vehicle's overall look is reminiscent of a classic streamlined steam locomotive.

I like that first pix. Family going for what looks like a Sunday ride. Was going to say in England, but the Driver and Conductor don't look English --at least back in that era. But the water tank looks right. Perhaps a place like India, where English influence was heavy.
Wherever--that Ford is a real ''scorcher'' I'll bet. All those windows mean lots of seats, and even though most are empty today, that old girl can't be geared to do more than 10 MPH---If that.
