I agree 100% on thatIMHO (I'm going o catch flack for this) the Studebaker HAWK is a much more timeless design then Avanti.
I liked the Avanti because of the aluminum body. Made me think of Land Rover's...always wanted one of those
Question? does the railroad have utility carts that sit and roll on one rail? I had a need to carry a 5 gal bucket a long distance along a railroad track. The bucket was filled with gear. I had to walk and do visual inspection of the plants growing along areas of "natural prairie remnants" I made a device that worked well for me. I was just wondering if the railroad had something commercially made.
I vaguely remember something that had 2 wheels. One wheel attached to a long out stretched axle that acted like a stabilizer arm that rested on one rail while the other wheel was on the other track under a bike/box/something or other. This thing was portable and easily attached to the rails. Put on you engineer thinking cap and come up with something.
