Hi all,

Out here Villiers motor bike engines were used as the motive power for some of the NSWGR
(New South Wales Government Railways) 
4-wheel track inspection vehicles (aka "Quad"). 
For more information have a look at

http://www.nicdoncaster.com/sectioncars/types/nswgrvilliers.htm 

and also check out the Section Car pages from

http://www.nicdoncaster.com/sectioncars/index.htm 

Scroll down to see all the links at the foot of the page. 
Caution: Be prepared to spend a while there. 
And you thought these were "odd"? 
There is enough stuff on this webpage for these strange beasties to be considered almost "common".

HI all,

If you thought the TATA at the top of the page was "odd", try these two Morris conversions from South Australia.

 




MIC (Motor Inspection Car) 126 of the former South Australian Railways, running on 3'6" gauge at Quorn in April this year.  

For more photos of MIC126 have a look at

https://www.pichirichirailway.org.au/gallery/category/462-motor-inpection-car-mic126.html


And MIC127 on static display at Steamtown Rail Heritage Centre at Peterborough in South Australia.






There was a "fleet" of about 8 of these Morris 25HP units built, with MIC126 and MIC 127 being converted to run on 3'6" gauge. 
All others ran on the 5'3" SAR broad gauge network. 

Originally they were black like MIC127, 
but after MIC127 was involved in a fatal road crossing accident, these cars went to the paint scheme on MIC126 above, 
to make these vehicles more obvious to dumb road users who fail to check if anything on rails is about to cross in front of them. 

In Australia anything on rails technically has right of way over road traffic at a level (US=grade) crossing.  
For more information on the SAR MIC's here is the information panel displayed with MIC127







Both MIC's have been re-motored with locally produced Holden motors and were good for 60 mph over the rails.

Happy MIC'ing,

Hi John :wave:

Some very oDd things you posted.

I do like No.126 !
Nice red wasp-stripes !!
BBBBZZZZZZZZ!!!!

2ft is a bit of a tricky proposition...
...getting the wheels either side of the engine.

Mmm...

Perhaps an oDd solution is needed.

Hi Si,

Naah, that one is also on 3'6 gauge It's a Kiwi. Built for a logging line in New Zealand.

If you want 2' gauge try this one :bg:






It was that new in 2011, it still had the caryard stickers on the front windscreen.
I wonder what it looks like now after a few years of service on it?

Hi Si and all,
L: maybe we have found a way to use mobile phones in cars without hitting anyone or anything. :Crazy:
But it does look like an ongoing deep and meaningful conversation is underway onboard the car.. without the car occupants paying much attention to where they are going ;)
