They were not always quite that ugly 





If they were built according the their drawings it later modifications that messed them up.

Would definitely make a 'visually interesting' model.

Just tried to edit the link, to the smaller size pic from the Beadmore page.... doesn't work.


Studied the various appliances hung up front on the car....

apparently three (?) radiators

two headlights....

wonder about the cylindrical objects....  water expansion tanks?  Mufflers?

There are also two objects beneath the car....

and, what are those long tubes for?   Maybe coolant pipes?

It's a wood gasifier unit -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wood_gas_generator

- used in WW2 when petrol was in short supply.

Apparently not too successfully as the bogies from these units were taken to power electric trams and the line reverted to steam power.
 
The bodies were stored post-war but not used - the line closed in the 50's

Oh well....  should have recognized this stuff....  
we reconstructed a "Holzvergaser" (German for those contraptions) thirty years ago.

It actually worked.... 
Was installed on a Opel Blitz truck. 

Also once met an old guy in Upper Austria who had installed a gasifier in the trunk of an Austin Cambridge....

Thanks for triggering my memory!

Gerold

This contraption wont exactly qualify as a railbus, but I think you all will love it.

" ... I think you all will love it "



Hi Gerold  :wave:



I can't disagree with you on that !  :thumb:

I think it passes as a 'bus' if a V.W. does !!  ;)





Another from Google Images of the E.F.P.P. Brazilian railbus.  :P



:cool:
