Hi all,
Must be hot out the verandahs and extended sunshades above the cab windows

Possibly a Bachmann 45 tonner with the flycranks and rods would give you a good start in HO

:Crazy: Who's going to be the first to show us a model one??

The NYC had one too:



After getting tired of changing underwear the turbines were removed and things returned to "normal". The little pipe under the turbines is a Pitot tube (like the one in planes). Seems that expectations were REALLY high...

Pitot-static instruments are more accurate at sea level due to compressibility at altitude.  I don't think there's a speed/accuracy curve for pitot-static instrumentation or controls.

Pullman Railplane - and this thing actually ran near the location of my Red Creek & Ramsey Springs operations.
Designed by an engineering firm in Dearborn, Michigan, and built in 1933, the streamlined, self-propelled railroad car had an aluminum body and was powered by two gasoline engines. At full speed, the car was capable of reaching speeds of 90 mph. After its unveiling at the World's Fair, the car was leased to the Gulf, Mobile & Northern Railroad (later to form part of the G.M.& O.) in 1935 and used – of all places –  between Tylertown and Jackson, Mississippi.
