The Bi-Polar Express

Post by Galaxo Magic » Sat Jul 12, 2014 7:06 am

Our new MV for 2014 is the Bi-Polar Express. This mini-steam locomotive is not actually steam driven. It is built on a 1987 Cushman Truckster.

This is my first new MV since 2011's pink elephant. We are hard at trying to get this ready for the playa. Pictures and updates are on our Weebly site: http://bipolarexpress2014.weebly.com

I'll post some pictures here as well.

All aboard

love it! Your elephant was fabulous.

The watch made me laugh. Nice touch!

I know how it is, Galaxo... you acquired the watch in some un-burner-related way, and then had to build the whole Bi-Polar Express to go with it, right? :wink:

I'm hoping to find you on Playa, and hop on for a spell. It looks really neat, so far!!
One of the best parts of '12 was riding on Beau Le'Phant for the burn, with King Elliot driving.
Can't wait to see your Express!! :mrgreen:

Patsh, King Elliot rocked it on Burn night. We couldn't keep up with him!

Our camp is at 7:15/A this year and we have our tower. You will find us!

Thanks Cptn G. I want moving art, not a moving party. Though the two are not exclusive. :-)

Late July, progressing. This little train is saying, I think I can, I think I can.
