This video was forwarded to me. It is quite an interesting contraption - but I wish I had one when I was a kid!

(Incidentally, my dad did make a Forney style locomotive out of a metal drum and plywood for our backyard. It didn't move, though.)

Neat. Would've been really cool if he synched the sound and the exhaust.

That's pretty clever. Should have made a shay out of it, and the sound would have been perfect.
