that was made in 1926 pal, and it doesnt leave a stinky pile in the middle of the tracks whenever it feels the urge!

after your donkey refuses to work any more because he is tired, ill use the motor to knock him off the track and out of the way.

:lol: nice. i can see it now. blasting down the track at about 6 mph screaming towards the donkey standing there....... about a minute later, still screaming towards the donkey at 6 miles per hour....... i have you now....... then the donkey steps off the track and watches the motor pass by. the motor then reverses and backs back up to the donkey who just stepped back into the track. just as the motor is about to hit the donkey the batteries die from the ct and nj guys playing with it all day. the donkey sits down and takes a big dump in the operators position. :lol:

ok, now that we have totally destroyed this discussion :lol: ........ lets get back to reality. here is a drawing we are going off of for the car. this is 30" gauge, so ours will be 6" wider and this has plain bearings, ours will be roller. other than that it will be similar to this drawing.
