Reproduction Fairmont Data Plates - These plates fit on the engine cover. They are correct for late 1930's to late 1960's cars. M9 M14 M19 S2 ST2 A3 A5 59C - maybe others. $6.00 per plate except Membership plate which is $3.00. Click on the photo below to see the plates full size.

Wheel Inspection Tools - The clear plastic wheel profile 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 clear plastic wheel profiles to determine track gauge. The stainless steel caliper is necessary to determine if you have the required 1/8" minimum wheel thickness.

One plastic wheel profile is $11 including S/H.

Two plastic profiles are $17 including S/H.

Stainless steel wheel calipers with laser printing (they'll outlast your grandson!) are $30 each including S/H.

One plastic profile and one stainless steel wheel caliper go for $35 including S/H.

Two plastic profiles and one stainless steel wheel caliper caliper are the best combination for $40 including s/h.

The new calipers have a bold mark at the 1/8" minimum. The new stainless steel calipers are shown below.

NARCOA Lanterns Trainman's lanterns produced by Star Headlight and Lantern. They are the model 292, which features a bright halogen lamp along with a conventional bulb.

The lamps are an effective tool for night signaling and make great presentation items for our railroad hosts.

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
