Today I came across this way too provocative pic of a Ford A riding on wood rails. This is probably a good project for somebody using RC controls:

Picture was originally printed in the Jan '46 issue of Popular Mechanics that can be found here:

page 71.

A pole road A...lovely! Yes, r/c would be the way to operate this one, I believe a small board & battery could be installed in a 1:48 model-back in the stake side bed. Brings to mind the old "7 foot gauge pole road Climax" which is another thing to build. Who is first to build one?

That looks like a rough ride. Wonder how well she stayed on the rails?
