Thanks Helmut - I never knew such things existed. Also a surprising number of traction engine makers who had a go at producing "traction engine locos".

I wonder how they got the axle weight v traction correct between the flanged rail wheels (guidance around curves) & the rubber drive tyres ?. What happened over undulating ground either side of the sleeper/tie ends ?. Floating sprung drive axle ?.
