A series of clockwork-operated segments, each operating independently but capable of coordinated motion. In small numbers, these are mere conveniences, but in huge numbers it can transport almost anything, alebeit slowly. Each device weights a pound and can carry ten pounds.

Speed equals reliability in miles per hour. The clockwork mechanism is very good at conserving energy; storing power from downslopes to expend in upslopes; nany force capable of moving the load on level ground is sufficient to keep the cartepillar moving. It can traverse rocky and uneven ground, but soft or water-logged terrain stops it completely.
