Steering isn't normally a major problem on a railbus though....

Drive your railcar defensively, a pair of British Wickham armoured railcars from early 1950s,
again running on 1m gauge line that served in numerous countries including Malaya, Burma, Goa, Thailand and Vietnam.

There is a number of those armored railcars preserved in Thailand.
This one is in an open air museum, just up the road from the main station in Bangkok, so far the only one I've seen in the flesh.

Somehow I like these much more than that fugly thing with the short steering column

I guess the paint options werent as extensive compared to Cadillacs though

A soft top convertible is cool cruising Long Beach

But you cant just throw your board on one quickly and go when the surfs up


:f:
