Wheel Inspection Tools: 
- Wheel Profile Gauge: The aluminum wheel profile gauge is necessary to determine if the wheel is flat, thin in the flange area, or has wear between the flange and the flat section of the tread. Use the wheel profile as your first step in diagnosing "hunting" on the rails.  Use two of the wheel profile gauges to determine track gauge. 
- Wheel Caliper: The stainless steel caliper is necessary to determine if you have the required 1/8" minimum wheel thickness.  The calipers have a bold mark at 1/8".
Stainless steel wheel calipers are $30 each.  
The aluminum wheel profile gauge is $10.  Use two to measure wheel gauge.
Two aluminum wheel profile gauges and one stainless steel wheel caliper are the best combination for $50.

Intercoms and Headsets for your Railcar - Aviation Intercoms and Headsets can protect your hearing, reduce the discomfort of the high level noise while operating your railcar. They also increase your safety by improving the communications with your crew members. You can start with just the Intercom + Headsets, then later connect to a Radio Scanner or a 2 Way Mobile Radio to monitor Excursion activity. I have many quality Aviation Intercoms for your Railcar. I have both New and Used Intercoms. All Intercoms have been tested and carry a One Year warranty.
Intercoms are available that can support 2 or 4 Headsets. Some of the basic portable intercoms can be powered by an internal 9 Volt battery (or an external 12 Volt source with an optional power cord). The fixed mount units are powered by 12 Volts from your railcar system. Interface adapters are available to allow any Intercom to connect to your Motorola Mobile Radio.Please call and we can discuss an Intercom for your railcar. Frank Hubley, Boxborough, MA 01719-1870 (978) 263-8257


EZ-Install Antenna for your Railcar - two styles antennas available. (Without an efficient antenna, your radio will suffer from short range).
Type "A” Antenna has an 18” whip and mounts in a 3/8” hole. It can be mounted on any roof surface up to 1/2” thick. It works very well on railcars with a metal roof $ 38 plus shipping. Railcars with a fiberglass roof can use this antenna with an optional ground plane kit (please inquire).“
Type "B” antenna consists of an 18” whip mounted on a 90 degree bracket. It is used on the rear of railcars with a fiberglass cab. It can also be mounted on the vertical posts of some open railcars. $ 48 plus shipping
At time of order, please specify if you need a Mini-UHF 3/8” Connector (Motorola Mobiles) or a Full size 3/4” UHF Connector (used on most other mobile radios). I can also provide adapters to connect these antennas to most scanners.
Note: the “Standard” Motorola NMO Mobile Antenna mount is designed for application on road vehicles that have a thin 20 Gauge sheet metal roof. It would require some significant adaptation to be useful on most railcars. Please call if you have any special antenna requirements. I also have 48” Gain Antennas that provide somewhat better range, as well as some “No Groundplane” Antennas. (Due to their very narrow Bandwidth, I do not recommend Sinclair Excaliber or ASP Linebacker Antennas for railcar use). Frank Hubley, Boxborough, MA 01719-1870 (978) 263-8257

Motorola Visar Hand-held Radios. The Motorola Visar is one of the smallest professional hand-held VHF radios ever made. It measures only 4" tall (w/o antenna). 2 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" deep. It has the same 5 watt output as the larger bulky hand-helds yet it can fit into the vest pocket of your safety vest and with the optional speaker/microphone you can have "hands free" operation. It has a 16 channel capacity and normally comes programmed with the three (3) NARCOA frequencies. This gives you thirteen (13) open channels for your own use. There is no additional charge for programming any additional channels. I DO NOT recommend a hand-held radio for primary use in a motorcar. I DO recommend it as an addition to a mobile radio. The radio and accessories are priced as follow:
Clean used Visar Radio...........................$125.00
Clean used Speaker/Mic...........................$45.00
Clean used Battery Charger......................$45.00

Motorcar Intercom Systems. Operating your motorcar on the rails produces background noise
that can reach dangerous levels. You can enjoy your excursions more by reducing this harmful noise and also converse with your passengers without shouting. What it takes is a good intercom system. The very best intercoms for a speeder are made by the David Clark Co., of Worcester, Mass. They are the perfect choice for good communication and hearing protection. David Clark systems are in use throughout the country by major railroads, emergency vehicles and wherever high noise is a problem. You can choose a system for conversation among you and your passengers or one that interfaces with your mobile radio to give you the highest level of communication possible. I would be happy to help plan one for your car. I have them both new and used. Give me a call or contact me by email. A good intercom system is one of the best investments you can make for your speeder. Tom Phair, 152 La Sonoma Way, Alamo, CA 94507 (925) 820-4159
