SMJ. Working on the Stratford-Upon-Avon & Midland Junction Railway the 'Ro-Railer' was equipped with both tyres and flanged steel wheels and was put into use in early 1932 working on the rails between Blisworth and Stratford Goods Yard on the SMJ line. The different pairs of wheels were swapped over using levers so that from the goods yard the vehicle could make its way through the streets of Stratford to the Welcome Hotel. The experiment didn't come to anything and was suspended later the same year, never to be re-instated.
