Old railway speeder

Now on display at the Alberta Railway Museum, this speeder once belonged to the now defunct Northern Alberta Railway. A speeder was a small railcar designed for a couple of men to go out and do maintenance on remote stretches of track.

Here in southern BC, the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway has weekend speeder rides available from its station in Cloverdale. The seats are bare wood and the cars are noisy and have no shocks, so the ride is a wee bit bumpy.
