Homebuilt Trench Train Engine

Look what these guys in Rockford IL built for their Military Museum there. It is powered by a Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower engine

It is named Wobbles

Here is "Wobbles" at work

Wobbles is a replica of the gas powered "Turtle Engines" that quickly replaced the steam trains in the British lines...The Steam Trench trains were too easy to spot and noisy compared to the gas powered ones.
