This very clever MOC is a nametag Ross built for me for when I attended BricksWest 2002. As you can see, he motorized it so that the wheels turned-- it was powered off of a 9 volt battery box which I carried around in my pants pocket:-) I used it again for BricksWest 2003!
I have been fortunate to be in the presence of this creation twice in two years. First, at BW02 at its inagural display and then at its repeat performance at BW03. The engine is truely amazing. I believe it is the only working 2 wide engine in the whole world. I can't remeber if it made choo choo noises, but I think the wearer was caught in a coner once playing with it and make some sounds. If you ever get a chance to take a picture of it or be seen with it, you must do so. John is a pretty cool guy so he might even let you play with it or make some noises.
