Nick has the right idea, the narrow gauge versions had far more character. Should you get one of the old vehicles for street use, keep in mind that many had their steering locked and in some cases the steering wheels removed. In other cases, the steering could be "reactivated" by pinning the drag link and they could be driven off the rails for short distances on their steel wheels. In the wacky world of rail trucks and other amusing gizmos, here are some pix - totally OT, but... Gary

What a cool surprise. When I saw the post I thought "wrong guy on the wrong board" and opened it up to see how bad the guy was gettin' flamed.

Very cool!! And to answer the question earlier - NO, this does not makes 20's traditional!!!
