This is a little-known photo of the inventor of the windscreen.

They are really what I wanted to do in a larger scale than O when I got serious about model trains in 10th grade. It was far easier to do HO diesels, you fit in to the group very much more. And I never did find where to get wheels to build my own.

@Rick S >>One of these is going to be built for the RC&RS, too.<<
 You can go to the museum and take measurements, maybe. Here's the pre-photoshopped photo. Tells you a bit about the railroad. BTW: Did you notice that this loco is a camelback? The engineer clearly stands above the boiler, and it is fired from the end of the carriage. Here's a description of loco and time the photo was taken( pages 55 and 56 )

This rocket powered railcar, will certainly get you places QUICKLY !! :bg:

Tested at Edwards Air Force Base, it accelerated with a 'G' force of 46.2 !! :shocked:

Drawbacks are probably, high ticket price, & no space for groceries on the way back from The Mall. ;)

:moose:

Could possibly turn your pint of milk into yoghurt ?

I had an ashtray on my H-D.  Technically, it was just a butt can...
