Hi Si.
 
There is a better photo of this,
in the  "Kinsey Photographer - Locomotive Portraits"  book.

Seems Kinsey caught some of the logging brass from the Sauk River Lumber Company,
taking their nearly new Skagit speeder for an inspection trip to the woods operation.

Also tagging along are a couple of Skagit Indian women going berry picking.

In 1945 Sauk still had 15 miles of standard gauge track,
with a 90-ton Shay and a 70-ton Willamette.

Hi Forrest

I got those photos within a few months of it being "given a birthday",
by the Port Alberni shops team back in 2013.

I wasn't expecting to see it parked at the station.

Hi all

On checking, the Alberni Pacific Railway at Port Alberni,
seems to have one of the CANFOR types.

It can be seen sitting outside their shops.

:Crazy:

If there aren't any ol' Airstream trailers about  :shades:  ...

... or logging safety regulators !  :P  ...





... the basic 'shed on wheels' form seems to be popular !  :shocked:


Add a V8 muscle-car motor ... Perfectly safe !  :w:

A more typical version is the attached Rayonier speeder, which is a Skagit.
The family likeness with #7 is I think apparent.


Found two more pics of this thing..

Now as there are front + rear views, no reason not to build one.

An interesting model to build,
a number of small windows and curved trimming on the walls.

When are you going to start building Gerold?
