It has the typical autorail intake manifold, one spark plug only (per cylinder, that is)

You may like to see these photos of Lazarus pointing out just how close the passengers could get to the accident,and the drivers eye view of the road ahead.I rather care for the "nautical" air vents on the roof.

As i had my own railway and I was very lucky to find a guard who liked Bugattis ! It was wonderful to get inside the only remaining Bugatti Autorail.They should have a special priced ticket to allow people to look inside.

A ticket to look at within in the train, seems me, however, what.
The small film of Queen is very beautiful with splendid music.

No they did not ! Although a local theater company did come and tie a girl on the line in front of the loco ! Here is my railway.

no i am sorry but I took lots of the outside because I was going to build an Autorail ! To fit on my 2 foot 6 inch railway it would have been virtually half size.

Getting back to the original topic of this old thread, about Bugatti ever installing a spark plug on opposite sides of the cylinder block, I was very surprised to discover something interesting on page 102 of Barrie Price's book on the type 46 and 50.
If you look at the upper picture (I would have posted the image if I had the slightest idea what I was doing), you see a photo of the Type 46 prototype engine. Notice that it has only one spark plug per cylinder, unlike the twin spark production version. But- when you look at the distributor it has dual ignition and then when you look harder you notice that the other eight HT leads are all fed down a tube to a set of plugs on the other sideof the engine.
I have been studying the very earliest factory drawing of the Type 41 engine overview and I now believe that at some early stage of the prototype Royales life it also had this plug arrangment. Most of the part numbers are for the Type 34 and it really indicates where the design came from. One thing that is for sure though, the story of the prototype having a larger engine capacity than its production offspring is a load of nonsense, every drawing held at the Bugatti trust has the 130mm stroke.
