Ever since I saw a Model T on railroad tracks I've wanted to drive one. It just seems like it'd be awesome to pull both of the levers down and look around while you putter along, not worried about steering.

I can keep up with a lot of traffic in my speedster but I'm always on high alert while I drive - all of the other idiots on the road being the main reason. But man! Especially if you could ride from one town to the next. Lol, I know that's not really doing much "inspection" per se, but it sure would be a blast.

That's one large mill or shaper sitting nest to the model T. I often wonder how they moved those big machines in the day?
