Here's a video that popped up on Facebook of a small vehicle in Japan that is great for creative off-road parking.  Here in the US, most states allow tracked vehicles if they have rubberised treads that won't chew up the road.  A Kettenkrad would also be very handy for doing creative end runs around Boston traffic jams...


I don't know what's more amazing - that he has a Kettenrad in Japan or that he's kept it running. We saw one running at the rally in Corowa a few years back. It's owner let us have a good look at its mechanicals. Like all German semi-tracks, they're extraordinarily complicated for what they are. 
 

Cheers,

 

Mark.

That is awesome.  I'd love to have something like that.

Wrapping my storage yard in multiple loops of track, because, well, that's the space I have and dammit, I'm going to make it fit!

5 car short trains with small turn radius.  You can do it with R90 curves. 😛

Here's a potential modelling project: a glowing illuminated truck bearing Official Words of Encouragement for the beholder to return home as soon as possible as the N501Y [*] variant is on the prowl. For added realism mount it on a Tomytec motorised bus chassis and have it run around your station (this was one of a pair circling Shibuya Station earlier).

[*] Aka the "British" variant

Yeah I’ve been thinking of how to do some ad trucks. This one would be topical and interesting historical later.
