Took two pics of the Brekina Railbus.




 
Seems the first axle of the rear bogie is powered. (Cant remember what I found inside back then)

Hi Gerold  :wave:


HOLY COW !  :shocked: ... A sane Member owns a model of it !!  :thumb:

That's gotta be a 1st  L:


I've always thought double-enders look really  C :cool: :cool: L ...

... you CAN drive the contraption from both ends, right ?

2 steering wheels ?  :dope:

Hope you've got your reversing light CVs programmed properly Gerold !  :brill:


;)

"sane" and "member" is a contradiction in terms.

Please make up your mind.

Jose (not sane).

Photo :  Jose arriving outside the Florida N.M.R.A. Convention, circa late 1940s !  :P

Jose

It was nice of 'them' to let you wear a proper jacket arriving for your fans !  :P


:Crazy:


Talkin' of straightjackets ...

... did the designer of this rail/roadie need one ?  ???





The 'Auto Railer' from Google Images has been up before I seem to recall ...  L:

... but those double-ended rail contraptions need more promotion !  :bg:  :thumb:


:cool: [toast] :cool:


Si.

Si, sorry, missed your questions... 

No, this thing is single directional.

A plain road bus from the factory, with those crazy bogies shoved underneath...

Re lighting, not sure now, if I even installed lights back then... memory is dim on this.

I do like that buses typically 'streamlined looking' body from the period !  :brill:





It has a very similar looking front/rear end ...

... to what I consider as 'that DB diesel look' ...

... just need the 'cream & red' paint split !!  :P  :shocked:


It'd look just like my '50s 'Selmer' geeetar amp !  :cool:


:java: :)
