Bob how do you get permission to get that on the tracks & whats the steering wheel for you don't need it on the tracks ? it looks like a whole lotta fun!

I believe Edgar Buchanan was also Hopalong Cassidy's partner "Red".

Looks like he made that bar as a big quadrant for the levers, there's no actual steering wheel.

Lol permission? HA. Although it would be really cool to ride in and then see how fast it would zip on the tracks!

That looks like the Sierra railroad's original T railcar & knowing a little about the filming of the show, I'm certain that it is. Bob's copy is really nice. I helped build the one at Portola (their #23), and they will go faster than you can stop them. You think T brakes are bad, try them with just a metal rim on a metal rail!
Still a HOOT to drive! (pun intended)

Edgar Buchanan was indeed in the Hopalong Cassidy TV series (1952-54) playing the part of Red Connors. He was in 40 episodes.

It was a hoot to run on the rails, never took it on a long run just around some rail yards. The picture was on its maiden run at Chehalis Wa, then ran it at Snoqualmie Wa. I was also invited to Ely Nv. (Nevada Northern RR) for a run then on to Jamestown Ca. to run with the orig. I was offered the rights to operate it under there insurance coverage, I checked with BNSF to do a photo shout on some of there back tracks and ran in to so much B S that I didn't go feather with it.

Ely, Nv.

James town Ca.

Before restoration of orig.

You need to have a chat with The Old Car Festival in Dearborn. You could run ahead of the train that circles the village and serve as a track inspector.

Dave
That would be great fun ,but I sold it to a private collection and I don't thing it will ever run again, and that's a SHAME.

Bob

PS
It dose have a unique shifting differential.
