On July 4, 1954, the VC-12 Tournatrain traveled around Longview, Texas as a promotional exercise. I like how this image shows a top-down view of the VC-12s control car. The operator’s cab is relatively small, showing that it cannot sustain operators for more than day trips. the large vessel behind the operator’s cab is a fuel tank. You’ll also see two engine housings for the Allison engines and LeTourneau generators. Also, that trike riding next to the VC-12’s passenger rear wheel is pretty neat!
