You may recall me mentioning that a fellow that used to live in Melbourne (And drive trams) named Richard Youle, built himself a half size 2 ft gauge Birney car which you could ride in and drive just like the real thing.
This was pretty well covered in ; TramsDownUnder@yahoogroups.com a while back.
Richard and his friend Barry, ran the car on a line built at Toolern Vale to the West of Melbourne until he moved up to Queensland, taking the car with him.
Pic shows WGB about to have a drive.
