1910 Model T chassis modified for narrow-gauge railroad. Frame has some heavy pitting on the sides and rear crossmember is bent from being used as a hitch. 6-rivet rear axle is narrowed and heavily modified to use 2 ring gears and sliding pinion for full-speed reverse. Engine is later, 1920.

Has heavy cast wheels with sprockets and chain to make it 4-wheel drive.

Was used to pull carts of cranberries out of swamps in Wisconsin.

$1500

Located near Rochester, MN

Derek - It looks like your boys want to get into the railroad business! Set it up in your backyard!

Sorry, put this in the wrong forum... though I was in the classifieds. :-(

Derek, I'm glad you posted it here, I would not have seen it in the classifieds. Very interesting unit. What gauge is it set for? There are a few narrow gauge tracks back your way, but most are out west, like me (way too far away to go after it). Maybe those two cranberry farmers we see on the TV would be interested??
:-)

Derek, I'd be interested but it's a little big for the gauge track I run on.

Good seeing you, your family and your Dad last weekend. Sorry I didn't have a chance to give your boys some "engineering" time on the train.

It seems like all of the cool early /old cars, automotive engines and parts in Minnesota and Michigan?? That would be so cool but it is a long drive from California.
