battery-electric Ruston by Maxitrak, complete with working headlamp and sound
card. Im not normally a great fan of amplified music when driving,
although have to admit that Geoff and I had great fun playing with this in the
workshop this afternoon (an ex-Ruston man himself, he complained
the engines the wrong colour). When switched on the speaker emits a pretty
authentic soundtrack of a large diesel engine firing up, its speed sensitive
when driving and, best of all, shuts down with a deathly wheeze and rattle when
switched off. Theres a fairly raucous horn sound you can play and, slightly
bizarrely, a guards whistle as well.
appears very little used and, for anybody who wants to collect it, will come
complete with a new-looking battery if we ship it, battery is a lead-acid
type and cant go by courier Im afraid.
