despite the apaerance, this may be a much better way to have a light weight work session.  especially because it can be lifted of the tracks so easily.  a model T work car would be just like any other train and must be routed like one.  but, say we had a compressor that could handle 1 or 2 jitterbugs tops and was light enough, this could let us do maintanence arround trains.  Food for thought.

We all ready have a push car with a mounted compressor, though it does not see alot of use.

It is a push car, not powered, and it is moved by the Brookville or man power.
