Here are 3 more methods of light rail transport......







The generator drive is interesting, kick starter and fan for cooling.
(Actually, after another look, that is a reduction drive starter motor driving through
all those chains, so batteries in the boxes at the frame front and a 2nd power source?)
Would be a fun ride I think....
Enjoy, Ken..

Herb,

Now that you mention it, that third photo looks like a good work of photo shoping.

Ok, those pictures are more beleiveable since the shadows show up. The other one didn't show to many shadows and there was no dents in the carpet where the wheels sat. Still looks like some one pasted it into the picture though.

Did I ever tell you I'm a skeptic? :bg:

That Harley-powered mine car is too cool! I especially like the desk fan used to cool the engine.

Mike-Yes, there are some 1:35 Harley kits available...but you have to look for them. TAMIYA made/makes one (WW2) and MINART made/makes a Harley like the Tamiya kit. If you want, there are some great 1:32 die cast models of old Indian bikes, I think DIE CAST DIRECT carries them. Good luck.

I'm going to have to add at least one old bike to my layout at some point. I didn't see any models or die cast models of bikes as old as the ones in the photo.... I like the older ones so I guess I'll just have to keep an eye out for one.

Mike-the die cast INDIAN bikes are in a "set" which has 8 bikes from about 1908 till 1947 or so. They are great models and while being 1:32, I have 1:35 figures on some and nothing looks hinkey. The old bikes are out there!
