There have been problems with the double-deckers sometimes !! :w:

I wouldn't have liked the view from upstairs on this one much !

:Crazy:

I guess this is what modelers would call, a QUICK CONVERSION !

Which is probably why they don't let us Americans drive them.

Of course, if your chap weren't on the wrong side of the road...

Maybe some explanations to post #62
When DB faced the fact that it was uneconomic to operate those branchlines in sparsely-settled areas, they partly closed rail lines, but did not want to suspend passenger service altogether. So they devised a contraption called "SchiStraBus" which translates as RailRoadBus to work both road and rail in one run. That is, you started out mounting that bus, went some distance parallel to the closed line to a station, where it was set on bogies/trucks and continued on rail to the terminus under its own power.

As for that daylighted doubledecker: IIRC that the Bus' original route was blocked by roadworks and those moroons in the dispatch handed out an alternative route to the driver without checking clearances first...

I am really liking that bus in post 61.

*Goes to see if he can bash a 1:25 Model A pickup and half a Bmann On30 passenger coach into something similar..."

I like the railbus in Post 61 a lot as well !!

The Ford-A seems like a good move.
Slightly bigger engine than the 'T' I believe.
'T's perhaps better for smaller 'inspection cars' maybe ?
Or anyways yer wanna cook it, of course !

Quite a few kits & diecasts of these, in various scales.
I think Matchbox Models Of Yesteryear...
...might even do a 1/4"ish Ford-A truck & variants.

Although this jazzy model features a (probably) 'stealth' Ford engine...
...she comes sans the typical 'Ford front'.

If you scoop up some hamburger with this rusty railbus...
...the oversize bell rings, for a 1000pts bonus ! ;)

I fear the 1:25 Model A is too big for 1:48.

I do have a 1:48 kit of a 1938 Russian BZ-38 fuel truck, though... hmmm.L:
