    We've had something similar in Denmark. Several of the private railways in their early days had steam railcars, of which some were built by kitson.
    The ones I'm most familiar with are the Rowan cars of the GDS and RHJ lines, patented by William Rowan, the manager of the carriage manufacturer Scandia (now part of Bombardier).
    The engine truck was removable from the car through the end wall, and indeed some of them ended up converted to seperate steam locomotives.
