Default Relaunched trivia: Unusual vehicles at Feltham Goods Yard

Due to the astounding interest shown in this trivia I've decided to
relaunch it in uk.transport.london:

We are in the days when the LSWR's colossal Feltham Goods Yard was
surrounded by fields:

Vehicle 1:

Was a light vehicle that was very light and ran on rails.

Vehicle 2:

Was bigger and lighter and was two fields away but wasn't a light
vehicle.

That's Vehicle 2, yes, in an early aerial view of the Goods yard in 1932
Hindenburg is moored (as you say) at Hanworth Air Park two fields away.

Hindenburg was a light vehicle but it wasn't a light vehicle in the way
Vehicle 1 was. Vehicle 1 was an experiment in something which is now an
everyday (or perhaps that ought to be everynight) occurence.
