For those that are not into Jeeps, the B & M is an FC150.

Always had a soft spot in my head for FC150's and FC170's

This is one of my favorites. It was built by a teen boy from an old Model T and was used to give the local kids rides:

This could be a hobby all by itself. Build a simple loop of track, maybe with a storage siding, and just build and run models of all these rail trucks. This is Jose's fifth set of photos on the subject. There's about 25-30 unique prototypes in just those threads, and probably hundreds more across the Internet.

The B&O Chicago Terminal speeder is freaking adorable. This one begs to be modeled on a micro layout with impossibly small radii. The Model T railcar built by the teen is also a gem. Can you imagine the list of laws, environmental regulations and prohibitions it would violate today? I know we live in a "more progressive and enlightend" time now, but what a marvelous contraption. Keep 'em coming Jose.Lou

If it's on rails, its more environmentally friendly than anything with rubber, except maybe the bicycle.

Sure, a train's mpg is pretty bad, but gpt (gallons per ton) is about as good as it gets!

Speaking of rail buses. My favorite.

And one for the trucks.
