I could actually maybe get to like that one a bit

I guess a decent car like a Cadillac could be converted

Not sure I would ever get used to not having a steering wheel

My tight fisted Insurance Company says I aint no good at steering anyway

No danger of the boiler exploding like with those horrible steam engines you guys like


:f:

Some early car->railcar conversions kept the steering wheel.

Sometimes it was simply locked out of use, but often it was used to operate the brakes or more occasionally the accelerator.

I like the brushes in front of the wheels to keep the railheads all shiny...

Well if you didn't you might have problems with the electrical pick up

When browsing the net for pictures of Pacific Electric cars in Argentinia, I found a page discussing Beardmore Railcars.

What a monster! 

Anybody out there willing to build a model?

Cor,

It is not very pretty but the black and white photo doesn't make it better.

I don't know if there is any but I would like to see a color photo of it.

Let's see if it is still that monstrous then ???.
