A Micheline Type 9 petrol driven railcar arrived in Great Britain for tests of the LMSR in 1932. The Micheline system used pneumatic tyred wheels, which claimed the manufacturer, gave a smoother quieter ride with improved adhesion for traction and braking. The Type 9 was tested on a few routes, but seemed to spend most of its time on the Leamington-Coventry-Nuneaton route. It was returned to France in late 1932 or early 1933, being replaced by the Type 11.
The railcar, specially built and not a converted road vehicle, was articulated. The driving cab sat on three axles with the articulated passenger compartment running on two axles. The livery appears to be a cream upper and a dark red lower.
No ready to run model is available and I am unaware of any kit, so it looks like a scratchbuild.
