I found it...though this one is missing its pop up Little Oscar.  It is a friction toy that is 9.5" long.  Cool!

The wiener Mobil I recently bought is very close to O scale The wheels are just a bit further apart than the O rails. It fits nicely on an old Lionel flat car. The wiener is about 9 1/2" long. I have considred cutting an opening in the bottom and setting it on a gang car that I have but still thinking about it. Does look cool on the flat car.

Nine and a half inches is the size of my wiener, but it's three inches wide.  That would make it twelve scale feet wide at 1:48, far too big for anything that would be legal on the roads.  If you consider it to be 1:32 scale, it ends up being eight feet wide, as wide as would be legal on the roads.  That makes it 25 scale feet long.

That means when someone says "that's to big" to John, it would be incorrect right?

 I'd also like to know how you mounted the motorized unit.

 Pictured would be great if anybody has some...





My hot dog just arrived from the Bay. After looking it over quickly I thought maybe leaving the bottom on and cutting an area on it out for the motor, I am going to use a handcar chassis and motor. MHO

I know where I have been, I know where I am at, I am hopeful I know where I am going.(The devil and God are talking it over).
