Maybe we could stage a similar event on the WW&F. It would be a great way to involve the community.
(One wonders what some of these folks were smoking?) If nothing else, it's good for a laugh.

I love it! And doing it on the narrow gauge would mean they'd be smaller and easier to build. (hey, where have I heard that before?)

OK, this video IS from Kalifornia, land of Ahnold and Hollywood.
I love the imagination, the invention, the wackiness. Kind of like the Steampunk thing that is popular now, combining modern technology with the aesthetics and look of the Victorian era.
 
Hmm, this would be a fun event, though. ;D The costumes, especially  ;)

And check out the homepage for the Handcar Regatta.
Some neat contraptions, a 3 wheel steam car and some other stuff.
It must be all that sunshine out there....
