When Simpson logging's RR was still running in the Shelton, WA area,
they didn't have anything like that.

Those kinds of larger speeders and trailers,
seemed to be somewhat common north of the BC border, though.

Once the era of logging camps ended, I guess that also ended the era,
of second hand passenger cars used to move loggers into/out of the mountains.

These Canuck speeders look like shop crews got a couple of old Airstream RVs,
and went nuts on them.

Imagine someone getting one of these sets second hand,
and taking it to NARCOA speeder meets.

You could turn one into an actual rail-mounted RV if you wanted to...
