Dear Jackson-p, on a technicality is the Land Rover a form of motive power? As such should it be grouped under Locomotives? One to ponder over?

Technically it doesn't belong under 'Motive Power - Diesel' as I believe it is a petrol version! That said, the Wickham Trolleys ended up there and they are petrol also. The SVR Wiki gets round the problem by classing them as 'Other rolling stock' along with tampers and such like, but 'Rolling Stock' here is defined as the Carriage and Wagon forum and it isn't really one of those either.

Probably not worth too much pondering - I tried it and that's five minutes of my life I won't get back...

Hi Reg & Robin, you raise a good point. I suppose strictly speakly speaking the Land Rover falls into the on-track plant / on-track machinery category. There has been other occasional forum discussion on tampers, grinders, trollies, Land Rovers, etc, so if required an 'OTP/OTM' section could be created.

What are your thoughts?

My 2p worth. It would never be a particularly busy forum, although the occasional discussions on cranes could also go there (Toby Jiblets etc). Equally the front page is not over cluttered, so one more forum would not be a distraction. I seem to remember that you asked a year or two back for suggestions of other possible forums to split out of General and nothing much came up at the time (IIRC my only idea was one for main line movements).

I'm reasonably relaxed either way and would welcome others' opinions.

This is extreme first world problems how to classify a Landrover that runs on rails. Razz
