Big Lizzie:



Exerpt:
"Calder Highway, Red Cliffs. This massive traction engine is the largest ever built in Australia. So large and so slow that it took over two years (1917-1919) to make the journey from Melbourne to the Red Cliffs area. It weighs over 45 tons, is 34 feet long, 11 feet wide and 18 feet high. It was powered by a 60 horse-power single cylinder Blackstone crude oil engine weighing 8 tons. The turning circle was something to marvel at; it took 200 feet radius to turn it around. It towed two massive trailers, each with their own water and oil reserve tanks, and had an overall carrying capacity of 80 tons."

MrFire, welcome aboard and thank you for sharing the great photos. Do you have a larger image of Big Lizzie you could post? I'm sure many would enjoy seeing more of that massive machine! And is the Michael Taylor whose pix you posted in NZ by any chance?

[QUOTE=The37Kid;5387102]Wonder what that axle would look like after the two 90HP 6 cylinder engines were installed?

The whole thing was just a scam to swindle investors......

T-Head thanks to adding that it turned out to be a scam. As 37Kid said,
there are too many things about this that aren't mechanically realistic.
Actually it looks like a bizarre movie prop!

Leave it to T-Head to milk a gag! LOL



And as for Post 702, my vote goes for: There was manipulation of multiple images to get a pretty fishy-looking publicity photo. If PhotoShop had been available back then, it could have been done way more effectively, IMO. I'm guessing negative matting was done in the dark room, exposing different parts of the neg with two or more source images. But WHY? No clue here!
