I am looking for an ex- CNW or Soo Line motorcar that I can get to donate to our local museum. The car does not have to be in running condition, but I would like it to be mostly complete. It can be in any various state of repair, or disrepair, as it will be used in a static display and kept outside in the weather.

I am also looking for a Fairmont MT14, preferably of C&O, Chessie heritage, ( if they had any), in decent condition, that I could do cosmetic and
minor mechanical restoration to. I would appreciate all offers. Thanks alot !
