    The boiler lacks armour. It would be nice to see it running over stagecoaches…

    Could add a little more armor, and mount some gattlings!

    Mebbee set a mortar on the top of the cab?

    I could picture the Daggars crewing it, firing LeMat’s out of the winders!

    *wonders if Emerson is in the market for a new steam carriage*

      It might not beat Mornington’s petrol burner but he better not stall out in front of us.

    Ok, that thing is cool.


    I wonder if someone’s going to build it! =O

    It’s a Lombard tractor, built around 1900 to skid logs in Maine.  I see a lot of potential…

      a steam powered “skiddah”

        It’s a wicked big skiddah.

          The Phoenix Log Haulers built in Wisconsin look a bit more robust than that.

            Good eye.  The Phoenix was actually built on license from Lombard’s patent, and that one in your picture has the later gear drive, as opposed to the chain drive from the original drawing.


            Whatever the case is, I love the design.
