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.

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?

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.

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