    Jeep-powered (PTO) Rail Car! Quite an evolution from the Kalamzoo MB engine powered 8 man railway car of WW2. With the Houston venue (my hometown – Gig’em Aggies!), wonder if this was a Koenig Iron Works invention, perhaps for work in McCarthy’s oil fields. Koenig had a large catalogue of accessories for Jeep Vehicles including tops, winches, etc. The ideas for the Jeep never end do they.
