The Aussies had several, too.
And this one is a Ford.

Nice photo Jose. Any idea which country ?. It reminds me of an Irish peat cutting railway. Or maybe a former UK opencast iron mine except they were usually heavier rail standard gauge.

The red Fergy is carrying a set of oxy-acetlylene gas cutting/welding bottles with a UK style regulator valve.

Massey-Ferguson and Ford, innovators of farm equipment.

Well, I'm off to lay rails in my field, it's about harvest time and the hay won't cut and bale itself. Hope those tractors have a zero-point turn radius.

Nice research Jose & Helmut !


That M.F. is a killer tractor Jose...

...the other piece of rolling-junk looks pretty cool too !

Kluncky chain-guard; nice rust...

...speedy colour-scheme !


Helmut's Ford seems to be pulling a hellavalot of bird-seed.

Is that a passenger bogie it's built on ?

Thomas the tank engine eyes as well !


Top speed on the Aussie freight model doesn't look stella...

...guess they took it off the Trans-Continental route.

(streamlining might have helped !?)

Built on a typical Brit-style wagon-frame I think.


Top trains gents !


Cheers.

Si.

makes sense, you have the engine and trans and drive axle.guess i could use my cub cadet lawn tractor the same way.pull the wheels off and set up a chain drive.maybe a centrifugal clutch to feather things out to get started.
