Interesting item to model. I wonder if the HLW Mack inspection car (similar type of hood) could be modified to look closer to this.

There's some amazing stuff in that article. Something for everyone, DeDion, Renault, Le Creusot too.

Spanish railways offer a lot of interest even if just for the diversity of manufacturers.

A model of the Fordson draisine would certainly suit someone's line just across the border.

I expect to see something produced by tomorrow evening. Laughing

These pics are from about 1996 (Note to self - should have written dates on pics taken before digital cameras.) There is a Mallorca thread running on GS C and I thought of posting them there, but am putting them here because the first one is the draisine on the German website. They were all taken in the tram shed at Soller:



There was the Fordson (?) tower wagon:



and from the rear:



and a non-powered tower wagon:



I hope that this will help people responding to Carl's 24 hour modelling challenge!

The draisine looks like a half-timbered house on wheels - you might even get away with it for 1610 Smile
