Too bad we couldn't see what it looks like.
Has a '26 engine.
Nice close-up of the guy's finger.

My step dad worked for the power company when they moved to Colorado. He was an avid train nut. Anyway, they sent a few of them down to Silverton as there was a substation between Silverton and Durango. They were on a Fairmont rail car to reach the substation which I think had its own branch off the main line. He took video from the cab. He lit up like a little kid whenever he talked about that trip. Almost wasn't fair to receive pay.

We enjoy railroading as well as T's. I am on the slow hunt to find a donor T and a donor speeder to make a Model T speeder (for those not familiar, "speeder" is a nickname for rail inspection and maintenance cars). A bit OT, but here is a picture of one of our cars.

It looks as though the 1925 T railcar had visited the Boothbay Railway Village.
It appears to be part of the collection of the Owls Head Transportation Museum.1925 Track inspection car

I was going to post a picture of the T railcar I helped build for the Portola RR museum, and then I realized it's on my fried Hard Drive. Oh well, it's been posted here before. Railcars are fun; finding a place to legitimately run them is becoming harder.
I still have my M-19--that's a two-cycle, single cylinder twin flywheel with belt drive unit that uses a wooden coil for spark--in fact the one in it right now is a T coil, although I do have the authentic Pontiac Coil for it. Oh, and it has T rings on the piston too!

Neat thread and a nice video.

David Hagerty, I don't think the ride on the Edaville RR would be much fun...looking at the tracks they are only 20 ft long! :-) Nice railcar though.
