In Nevada, the old Ludlow & Southern's shop crew created a most unusual "locomotive" which proves the point that there is a prototype for ANYTHING. Check this out:




The crew mounted a Holt tractor motor and transmission on the remains of old 4-6-0 #2. This photo is a little old & weathered but you can see what a shop crew can/could do with a little imagination. OK, who will build an operating model of this one? I dare you!!!

The photo was by Richard Berry from Myrick's "Railroads of Nevada Vol. 2". These books are full of cool and unusual locos and cars. Thought everyone would get a hoot about this one.
