The second one is treated unfairly - what looks do you expect when a Mt. Washington rack loco is put on level track?

Second one is either intended to go up and down vertical walls OR an early prototype for the Apollo capsule.

Intended purpose is beside the point. I'm sure all three I posted have a special purpose. None the less, they are, in my opinion, ugly. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Ugly has character.

Hi all 
Try some of the Britton Brothers contraptions at http://www.geocities.ws/loggingloco1/BVT/bvlocomotive1.html#loco_brittons, especially the "Marshall".  Mind you the original Buffalo-Pitts was never going to win any beauty pageants either. 


Also have a look at Diesel #1. This has been modelled in O scale by Aussie modeller Professor Klyzlr with an operating driveshaft back to the leading log bogie. Given its Climax origins, perhaps it also gets a run here.
