There was a group of the speeders running the old Soo Line and some of the old Great Northern Rail in Northeast Montana a couple of years ago. I saw a clip about it in my hometown newspaper (Plentywood, MT ... Sheridan County News).

The speeders on that run were all privately owned and rebuilt, etc..

Of course ... had to get permission from the current rail owners.

Bullwinkle is my buddy Steve's car. Steve Hier, another HI in Chicago. I'm the guy in the green hat in cab, he's the engineer.

Buncha nuts that find these things, rebuild them, then go on runs on old rail line all over the US of A. Some of them are things of beauty.

In Traverse City now.......I'll post a few more pics when I get back to Chicago.

Any husband/wife teams in the group? The speeders look roomy, comfy.

Are the headsets for talking to other speeders or is it so noisy that it's needed to talk to the engineer in the same cab?
