The Ballard Terminal RR is looking to sell it's Fairmont S2 speeder in order to purchase a larger car more suitable for our needs. The car has an ROB engine (water cooled cyl head) with belt drive.

Good:
-carbody in good condition
-wheels in good condition
-The engine runs and the car drives, has been used regularly
-Car has been rewired (wiring in pictures is the old wiring)
-new battery
-3 strobes added (also not pictured)
-shop built turntable/jacking system included
-New coil (pertronix automotive style)
-fuel pump added
-carburetor rebuilt
-engine side seals replaced
-new alternator belt + spares installed
-shop built tool platform for rear of car also included

Bad:
-Throttle shaft needs repacked (small vacuum leak)
-suspect head gasket is leaking, oil in coolant/ slight loss of compression.

We would like $2500, but the price is very negotiable and we are open to and interested in trades.

Items we need:
-larger car, preferably an "A" car with atleast a 4cyl engine suitable for towing a ballast cart and small excavator. If you have an A car you would like to trade we would add cash to equalize to the value of your car.
-Ties, prefer brand new but will consider relay
-track tools (track wrenches specifically)
-tool carts
-wheels/axles
-100/112/115/136 lb relay rail

All trades are contingent on the approval of management

This "Northwestern Motor Car 561" should fit your needs I think. It has an old Ford V8 for power and is beefier than your average motor car. Also located a short ferry ride away.

Thanks, we actually went up and looked at that car a couple months back, it's a real neat car, it's just been sitting for so long it would need more effort to get it going than we're willing to put into it.
