Unless my eyes deceive me there are narrow gauge RR tracks under that thing.

...A most interesting photo indeed.... At first glance it appears to be a lokomotive ( a "train" is composed of multiple vehicles ), but a closer look doesn't disclose buffers, or verticle exhaust; if this were a schmalspur deisel loko they would be visible. Perhaps it's an LKW, or auto fitted with boggies in place of road wheels. The armour looks professionally fitted; suggesting this was a purpose built vehicle; and not a field mock-up.

I recal hearing from someone on this forum that the British had a note that the Turks had an armored train or something armored on rails, would this be it?

...just have to keep going back at looking at this poor quality photo over and over.... Have you noticed the vision/firing ports sketched on the side ? Possibly the writing is not on the vehicle, but rather scribbled on the photograph?

Why did the previous post "Armoured loco in the Middle East" of the same photo on eBay get no responses, yet this post gets lots?

The initial post was informational. The second post contained an inquiry. I can't speak for other posting participants, but that's what prompted my replies.
