For something really different, here are two clips from youtube.

First, on Chrysler Sea Mules . . . anyone have experience with them?  Are there any restored versions?

And second, on Kettenschleppers, toueurs or chain tugs  . . .  the video is not English but you can get the drift in two minutes or less.  They’re used in long unventilated tunnels which would fill with fumes if combustion engines were used.
