Hi Pat,
That's a keeper! Love that kind of innovation...thanks.

Picture of a white in color H5, to motivate me on my build.

Also finished a Bulletin article on Gar Dickerson Doble Triple. Copy is with the family for review. I should be submitting to Margie in a week. Picture of Gus with his Dad's engine as sort of a preview.

Dang it Pat! I have that photo on my computer and have no idea where I originally found it....senility is setting in. Probably came from somewhere in Google Books...

Thanks very much for sharing.

Pat,

Those are some brave folks, looks like the guy in front has steering duty and the guy in back works the boiler. That spiked driving wheel is definitely fuel for nightmareseye popping smiley. The frame on that thing looks so flimsy...but I bet it was a lot of fun to scoot across the ice on that thing!

Hmmm....maybe my next project?

Hmmm.....now that I think about it, my dad helped some guys build an ice rig with a spiked wheel like that back when I was a little kid … like circa 1962. Haven't even thought of that in decades. Wonder where they got the idea originally … that picture?
