That's really funky. I wonder what the advantage it was supposed to have over regular rail transport?

Very interesting and funky. I wonder though if it has the same coming off the rails, or getting "wedged" that cheap sliding closet doors have? Grin

Looking at the photos above, it appears that the boiler must have some kind of slot in the bottom to accommodate the tall, single drive wheel!

I like the old trucks in the background Smiley I could use one of them right now for YARD-ART

Franklin pioneered air cooled engines. There is supposed to be a big domed shroud over the top of the cylinders which ducts air
from the blower down at the front of the block.

It and all the trucks in the background are for sale - the owner wants scrap value for the Franklin

The early Caterpillar (Holt-Best) gas engine models were built this way.  Especially easy to see
on the Model 60 Cat or Best.

Cool trucks! I hope they find a good home. I'd buy 'em myself if I had a pile of money and a place to put them!

Great pic but I to love the trucks in the background.

Terry any chance of a few more pics of those trucks, especially like the fact that the door is open on that first one so lots of detail that you don't normally see.
