More loco ideas

Now this is inspiring!  Though we could say it's perhaps not pedal-powered...

Looks a streetcar front end, with boat-style air intakes above. Note the par lamps as headlights.

Santa Clause 2010 build photos

Richard had an ambitous plan to use electroluminescent (EL) wire to turn the greenspeed tandem trike and the organ trailer into a light-up train for tonight's Santa Claus Parade.

Richard, Mark, Alex, Pete and others got together at re-Cycles last weekend to start the build. I was pretty busy and only stopped by to take a few photos of them building the frame. My photos of that day are below, Richard's are here:

340 feet of EL wire and a few days later, they finished it and it looks awesome! See the photos and videos on Richard's photo page:

Come out tonight and join us (or at least watch us in the parade)! We'll be float number 53.
