Well its really called the "Tin Chicken" from BVM kits, but I hacked it about so much from the original that I called it the "Rusty Rooster"

It looks very rustic indeed, I have the same doubts Tyson has.

Paul, I just saw a photo the other day of a Tin Chicken, and thought it was really a neat little rail car.... your "Rusty Rouster", however, has taken the competion to a whole new level !

Great job !!! Bob

Thanks guys,
As yet it isn't live LOL, but a chassis can be bought for it from Bachmann to make it run like a rooster with its head off.

Nice Rooster, Paul.
Mine is winging its way from Dallas as we speak and the Drive is coming from a place I found on the web at £28.00. I'm looking at possibly putting the Wills Yard crane , a few rerailers and a couple of jacks on mine.

By the way Bachmann also do Speeder set in the same range - neat little speeder with a mini flat car and a small crane car - all on spoked wheels. Word has it the set is extremely On30able!
