I have been collecting parts to build one for several years now.

You have to wonder what kind of fault codes the ecu is putting out...

Wood is a very dirty fuel. I'm waiting for someone from the government to tell him his carbon footprint is too large.

Yeah, Im a raging rail fan and if I had the ability Id make a mini truck that looks like a steam engine and runs on steam. Hell, Id make some other popular locos that are diesel powered and try to replicate a lot of their system, but it would run on tires steered by the driver.
