That's marvelous!
It looks like a Mamod stationary steam engine is used for it? It runs very good.
Have to try something like that once (somewhere in the future). Must be fun to build it.

Last week I found a similar sort of project, using a stationary engine and Meccano parts.
It's looking even more euh... distinguished:
"The Thing" or ‘HEDGEHOG’ - A Bodgeller’s Steam Locomotive .

Here's a picture of it finished, but if you visit the page you can see it evolve from bits and pieces to a rather nice - one of a kind- engine.

Comming back to this topic...

Wilesco Tram

Mamod Contraption Tram ( it's the same engine As the one in Carl's post!)


The last one was so inspirational I placed a 40 euro bid on a Mamod SE2A steamengine... Lets hope the seller agrees.
Hopefully my scratchbuild skills are enough to make a simular thing.

Seller didn't agree... But no tears, I'm aiming for an old Mamod Minor because it is more compact and looks simplier to work with (cylinder on top). Hunting down the Ebay UK site for it, because prices are more wallet friendly than our national auction site Cool
