" Would this be a   0-1-0----0-1-0   if it had rail wheels? "



I know you can't see them all in that photograph

But most cars have wheels on BOTH sides


I think an  0-1-0----0-1-0  is a pair of coupled unicycles !


:doh:

Thanks Eddie for the correction, not thinking too well these days.  :old dude:


" Would this be an  0-2-0----0-2-0  if it had rail wheels? "


The British have been known to do some odd things,

but  0-1-0----0-1-0  :Crazy:  is pushing it.


....Peter : :w:

In French nomenclature, where the axles are counted, it is a   0-1-0  0-1-0


But wait, they had their own version of this:

IIRC the Citroen was built to work in a place where there was not a possibility to turn around,

so it was just driven from the other end.

“Havelock” was covered in thick hemp Royal Navy anchor rope,

leading the troops to dub it the “Hairy Mary”.  


This pulled military trains in South Africa during the Second Boer War.

Was this intended as camouflage,

or for some marginal protection?

It was intended as protection from small arms fire. 

Apparently it worked as the rope had some give to it and absorbed the bullets.


Now if you have an engine that you really messed up on,

you can drape a bunch of scale rope over it to hide your boo-boos,

and still be prototypical.

Enough messed up engines here.... 


Reminds me of the wooden Austro Hungarian Warship "Kaiser",

which was pressed into service against Italian ironclads...

In this desperate situation, they hung old anchor chains on her sides as protection.

Also you will save a ton by not putting superdetail items.

Jose.
