Remarks & Notes 
Perhaps the most unusual speeder of all time! This is a live steam speeder! A 4-6-2(?) propane-fired live steam loco mounted on the speeder frame drives the standard gauge axles via a chain drive. The interior of the unit is equipped with cushioned captain's chairs. The bar protruding from the center of the frame is for mounting vehicle tires so the whole contraption can be towed down the highway! Anyone else got any info on this strange critter?
