Re. that scrapyard truck.

It's very obvious that this setup is meant to be an eye-catcher instead of a real hauling device.


Interesting enough they attached truck-mounted couplers in the fashion of the 60's,

until MR, MRC, and all the other magazines outruled this as too toylike.

An interesting prototype, from 'Google Images'.

Exactly this type was offered by a German company some years ago....
Couldn't resist and bought one, it's a little out of place on the West Coast...  

Then labouriously installed a decoder out of sight....
(the provided place would have it stick out in the passenger compartment).

Will check if I have pics and info of the model when back home.

Remember the poor engineer / motorman had to put the bus on those bogies,
and back on the road wheels again on his everyday route.

Provided you are able to read German, the whole story can be found here.

'Red Arrow Line' had two diesel buses converted to two-way-operation in the 1960s.
