I vote 1-0-1. But is this a rebuild of an old steam cycle?

Don't know that I would want that much steam exhausting in the neighborhood of the family jewels.

Balt makes a good point. When I was a kid in Vermont, delivering papers, I used to think about a steam bike. I would ride my bicycle on my paper route. It was then that I discovered Trains and Railroad magazines, and my love of the iron horse began.

Re The Lartigue Monorailway- well at least there is no mistaking which way the switch is lined up. 

Could it become unbalanced and tip over? Or impossible?

So THAT's where Lex Luthor wound up, running a steam tourist railway in Ireland!

Well he seems happy enough, and as long as it keeps him out of Superman's hair it's all good.
