Heres a little 'draisine' I made to ferry the management of the tramway around;

 



 

these started to be made around 1905 with petrol engines and then deisel, but were too small to be commercially viable. After the first World War with a surplus of military vehicles they used the lorrys with their wheels exchanged for  flanged wheels. It was from these little trolleys that Monsieur Michelin developed the first railcars.

Interesting looking tram Mikey - with those "gingham" curtains, it could be used as a mobile "Devon clotted cream teas" kitchen for the workers !!!

Looks like an 8 seater plus drivers cab ?
