|Another great book, if WDLR railroads interest you.
I have had this one since it came out, years ago.
BTW--, Two Foot Rails to the Front, has a couple photos of the German single cylinder, two stroke Deutz locos with huge flywheels.
These things seemed to be very shy, photos are rare--or am I looking in the wrong place Helmut? Plenty of photos of similar, later Deutz's, but not these. Over the years following the war, Deutz made a lot of 4 wheel locos with the same , or close to the same engines, but it would seem that they were made to order specs. They are like VW Beatles---all the same, but all different. Be nice to see some of the small details
But then, you have to be different to like the Deutz's
Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
