This one powered by on-board batteries. No word about RC control...


1937 Ma&Pa Buick rail auto


Michelin rail bus


If front truck wheels were any smaller they would have been stored in the "large washers" bin....














Last one has an interesting wheel layout. Jose.

Yes, I have an authentic DERAIL sign that I found years ago. It stays near my layout so everyone knows what may happen if not careful!

I'm startin' to get the idea that I can get a bunch of bus parts, a bunch of car parts, a bunch of railroad parts & some glue and have at it to create my own "rail critter" and be prototypically correct.:!: L: :us:

You might even get some tractor parts and a few airplane parts to add to the mix. I can almost see you working on it now.... Just throw them into a bag with some glue, shake and out comes a prototypical critter.

Hey Mike,

You could call it a "shake & glue" kitbash. L: :bg:

That's exactly what the prototype did. All those long winter nights in the roundhouse weren't wasted... Jose.
