A other model - where the weight of the car is transferred to the tractor:

Picture is taken from a odd angle so that you can not see the connection device.
 
The pictogram shows the connection device:

Danish rail-cars:
 
Build by P. Meulengracht Jensen, in Copenhagen in the first half of the 50's.
Motor is a Ford Anglia.
 

 

 

 
This one has an Ford V8

 
Inspection-car - named ”ildflue” -firefly. Used at Ryomgård for control of rail and switches.
2- cyl.  air cooled 2 tackt motor. 5-6 Hp. No reverse! Speed 45-50 km/h.
 
Standard 2 person motor trolley, originally open. Was purchased by the DSB  in 1928 from Berg & Co. Mekaniske Verksted, Ullersåter, Sweden.
 
When the vehicle must be running in the opposite direction, you lift it using a central jack, as it is rotated 180 ° around.

Been away, for a minute, dealing with some health issues and real life. I'm back now and looking for someone in Northeast Michigan to hang out with.
 
MM5 had to be back-burnerd for awhile, but is working it's way forward slowly.

hi all,
been fighting pneumonia since last wednesday.  been lucky to stay at home and after being discovered on saturday...the drugs are working!  i'll see the doctor tomorrow and then maybe, back to work!
 
 
pockets:
s'bout where we started...
 

 
...'bout as homely as this...
 

 
or this...
 

 

 
the bottom two pics get as close to the concept as anything.  not saying that the truck has to be a 'c' cab...could be the 'box' cab with pick-up body with wooden framing and canvass cover.  unless we come up with other powering options, we have a lot of 'gear' to hide.
 
haven't been able to locate the model of the model t engine, but do have the first ford v8 engine model.  i'll keep look though.
 
steen:  thanks for keeping an eye out for oddball railroad vehicles!  you are one in a million!
