I use to be a button person, now I'm more of a touchscreen type. Hence, I removed that damn 33 button radio and replaced it with a 6 button and touch screen multifunction unit. (Sat, Nav, Phone, Stereo, and blue tooth)

Interesting that the track (measured from centre of each tyre ) changed from 1270 (two rows of potatoes ) in 1947 to 1435 (standard rail gauge ) in the present day.

All of ours have 8 wheels - 4 conventional wheels, and 4 rail wheels (on hydraulic bogies front & rear ). The rail wheels aren't driven, they just guide the Mog and keep it centered on the rail-head. The Mog actully drives on track on the road wheels. We don't use the 'off road' ability and axle articulation very much at all - except for getting on/off track - which we can do anywhere - we don't need a dedicated rap ( RoadRail Access point ) - we can literally just drive up to the line, square it up and sit on the rail track. The torque is astounding (useful for pulling laden wagons behind it ), and the hydraulic pumps can drive a multitude of attachments.

As I said, we don't use anything near the capabilities of the vehicles, but they are still pretty unique, and totally versatile.
