    Looks like the wagon is Jet Propelled.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    I wonder how many cresote-treated railroad ties they set afire using it. The front end of the cab looks like the back end of a modern school bus. I bet clearing enough snow from a track switch to enable it to work was quite an ordeal.

    I really shouldn't say anything though because we used to burn the tumble weeds from miles of our fence lines using propane weed burner torches and WWII surplus flame throwers and never started a single wild fire.
