C4D Aerotrain by cravingfordesign C4D Aerotrain by cravingfordesign
General Motors built this experimental " Aerotrain" in 1955, using bus bodies on railroad wheels as its coaches. After being tested by three different railroads in actual passenger service it was a failure, despite its striking styling.

I guess GM tried, I love the art deco style of this train, just amazing to look at :)

The whole reason it was a failure is that the bus bodied car shook like a ragdoll

That is one neat looking engine....a design ahead of its time, though I think the 'nose' seems to extend a bit far from the engineer's cab.. It sure looks aerodynamic...:D

Smile!! It keeps everyone wondering what you've been up to!
