Here's a nifty little railcar that was built by a kid out of an old Model T that he bought for $5. It actually ran, and was used to give rides to all the local kids.



If you're interested, you can read about it here (it's part of a rather interesting account of early living in rural WV):

Just when I thought I didn't need any more rail cars/trucks! Gee thanks, Ray...you are to blame for this! Wunnerful and extremely neat.

Woodie
