    Tournatrain on cover of 1955 Popular Mechanics - image

    A Tournatrain featured on the cover of the 1955 Spain version of Popular Mechanics. The English version skipped the Tournatrain and instead featured a beaching rig for large seaplanes.

    R. G. LeTourneau was a genius. There was nothing he couldn't do if he put his mind to it.
