Dear All, Just a quick introduction. My main interest is in WW1 vehicles - primarily the tactical narrow gauge (60cm) temporary railways used by all sides (www.wdlr.org.uk). I have a personal collection of several of the British & american freight cars/wagons. I am also a significant shareholder in a French WW1 steam loco (due to steam next year). I was heavily involved with the Salvage Squad episode covering the WW1 armoured narrow gauge petrol loco several years ago. I have been reading the forum posts on the WW1 lorry recreations/restorations - these are very intreiguing & have many similiarities to the Ng wagon project I have been working on. I am starting to research a new project at the moment - a convertable road/rail tractor based on a Ford model T. There were about 120 of these "created" by the London North Western Railway at their Crewe works in c1917. They were know as "Crewe Tractors" - I have some photos on my webserver - http://www.wdlr.org.uk/wdlr/images/crewe_tractor/ I hope to get some useful advice from this forum! Best regards, Gareth
