Don't know how you guys come up with the projects but I thought I would throw this in the mix being as it is one strange self propelled flatcar.......Wish I had more pics but these are all I got.Got them off a heavy truck collector and restorer site.The KW ran a Hydro pump that ran hydro motors on the axles of the flatcars trucks.

That's one seriously strange mashup.

The challenge wouldn't be so much in building it (looks like a fairly simple bash)--it would be making it run!

Exactly what I was thinking.The truck is located in a good location directly above the truck so you could hide the trucks power unit in the truck over the truck that is under the truck.....truck.....truck Truck TRUCK ::) :P :o


And some filler pics just cause they need to be posted......

The challenge for you, David, is to have the tie crane in the back articulated and working while the car is moving!

Is that an 85' flat?
Hard to tell from that angle...

I like how, in your second and third pics - they've removed the road wheels entirely and appear to have installed flanged wheels on the rear axles.
