Armored Train

This is the way to travel!  Austrian armored train, circa 1915, in all its rivet covered glory.

    Very cool! It almost looks a non-working mockup in that pic, but wow, every inch is covered in armor. I can onlyimagine how strong the engine has to be to pull that beast.

    Great shot! It actually sent me to the Google machine, where I found this Polish take: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3rtzyNWzg1qiys7mo1_1280.jpg

    These are certainly some lovely lumbering beasts.

    Great picture JRD. It makes me wonder if they didn’t use a couple of engines to get these things moving – the weight must have been immense.

    Their brutish appearance sure makes the track look pretty fragile though…
