Scale model of the mighty Saturn V Rocketdyne F-1 rocket engine. The F-1 was developed by the Air Force in the late 50's and shelved because there was no application for it. When NASA was created, they realized they could use this engine for the Apollo moon project. The rest is history.
Imagine your layout with this engine on a flatcar headed from your rocket manufacturing facility to be fitted to a rocket at the launching site.
