    Fairmont made track speeders, little self propelled rail cars used by track repair crews before the advent of hi rail trucks.

    FWIW the one with the bed is a '51. I've got to quit looking at stuff that is potentially worth buying. It's interesting that the one says manufactured by Fairmont. Seems like it would say conversion by Fairmont?

    Free shipping to NH?

    I did in fact blow mine up, long ago. But that truck is a parts vehicle now, since the entire rear half of the frame returned to dust. I suspect the ones in the ad may be headed the same way, being nearby in the same salt country.
