Railbuses kits are few and far between. Thanks for sharing. Jose.

Jose, the Valley & Siletz railcar is more "properly" called a speeder. Logging roads built and used many ultra-cool vechicles like that one. The "passengers" this one carried wore boots and flannel shirts to work in the woods. But it could be called whatever, I'll bet the crew called it something when it derailed or ran out of gas!

Woodie

BTW-the McKeen car will incite Bill Fornshell and Herb Kephart to impart info on the famous "windsplitter".

Woodie is correct, I am a bit "obsessive-compulsive" when it comes to the McKeen Motor car and the other McKeen Company rail items.

This is one of my "if only McKeen had developed a better drive system" ideas.

Thanks for finding and posting the WP&YR Railcar. I found a few pictures of this Railcar sometime back and started a card stock pattern mock-up of it.

http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=3638&forum_id=46&jump_to=40544#p40544

Lack of a good front side picture cause me a lot of problems and I stopped working on it.



With this picture you found I can go back and correct a few of the problems I was having and maybe now finish it.
