I picked up a small collection of O scale old-time vehicles to fit in with my Narrow-gauge layout, and 2 or three of them look like this one. I believe that they're English steam lorries. Actually, they look really cool. Can anyone tell me what sort of era they may be from? Could I come up with some sort of quasi-plausible excuse for having them up near the British Colombia-Alaska border? Here's an idea....this old British fella (sort of eccentric, or senile, depending on the point-of-view) brought them with him to start some sort of gold mining scheme...??
