FOR SALE (Apr 15, 2021) New Hampshire - a MOTOROLA Mobile Radio and an Intercom for your Railcar ! - With a Mobile Radio installed in your Railcar, you will be able to hear essential communications from the Excursion Coordinators and others regarding the current location of the Excursion Railcars. You will also be able to hear safety messages about conditions on and along the track (tree down at MP81.7, trespassers after the sharp curve at MP93.3 or very poor sight-line at the Clover Street road crossing). You will also be able to advise the E.C.'s of any changes, such as a mechanical problem or any emergency situation.

All of my MOTOROLA mobiles undergo a complete mechanical + electrical inspection prior to being reprogrammed with the three NARCOA Channels and seven NOAA Weather Channels. I have Astro SPECTRA, MCS-2000 and CM-400 Radios in stock. The System capable radios are programmed with all 97 AAR Channels. All radios ship with a complete accessory group, consisting of a Radio Bracket, Hand Microphone + Hang-Up Clip, External Speaker, Power Cables and an EZ-Mount Antenna with pre-attached coaxial connector. I include an Installation Guide that I have specifically written for the Railcar environment with each shipment.

I also have a selection of reconditioned Aviation Intercoms and Noise Canceling Headsets from David Clark, Sigtronics. and Avcomm to make your trips more enjoyable and less stressful. I have an Intercom Interface Box to connect any MOTOROLA Mobile Radio to a standard Aviation Intercom. .It is possible to start with just an Intercom for 2 people and later add a Mobile Radio for full communications with the Excursion. Please Note - I do not sell or support Portable Radios, due to their very limited transmit range and battery capacity. Also, I do not repair or program “Other Brands” of mobile radios, as I do not have the required software, cables and experience to work on non-Motorola radios.

Please inquire regarding price and delivery of a Mobile Radio, Aviation Intercom, Headsets or replacement parts. Please call or write with any Questions !

FOR SALE (Mar 28, 2021) California - DAVID CLARK INTERCOM FOR SPEEDERS -

For sale are full feature intercoms systems for speeder use. These systems are made by the David Clark Company of Worcester, Mass. They are the same systems that are used by the class 1 railroads as well as most fire departments, rescue units and ambulance companies across the country. The model I sell is made exclusively for motor vehicles which makes them perfect for speeder use. These systems provide complete communication including conversations between the car operator and passengers. All functions of the radio are handled by the intercom, both transmit and receive. David Clark intercoms are known for their clarity both within the car and over-the-air broadcasts. They are designed to be used with most commercial radios but they can also be used as a stand alone intercom by itself (without radio connection).

If you are looking for a great intercom for your speeder...call or email me and I'll be happy to put a system together for you.

SOLD! (Feb 6, 2021) Ohio - Reposting back for sale Woodings CBI - For sale PRICE REDUCTION 6000 for the car or 6400 with a trailer.

Finally time to let my Woodings CBI with the 18hp motor go up for sale. I had this posted before and it sold but the deal fell apart and now it back for sale. I have had this car for five years and it has been fully redone with the following being repaired or rebuilt.

Completely rewired with new toggle switches for all functions.
Motor valves checked and adjusted, carb and fuel pump rebuilt.
New custom made fuel tank with new fuel gauge.
New rubber fuel line with filter and new sediment bowl.
Rubber mounts on subframe replaced.
Fiberglass body repaired and repainted with automotive paint and clearcoate.
Custom reproduced decals.
LED tail and brake lights. Brake lights flash when applied.
LED Ecco class 1 strobe. (Professional grade and very bright)
New set of brakes not installed.
All stainless steel hardware mounting the body to the frame.
Aluminum ground plane on the roof with 1/4 wave antenna also mounted with stainless hardware.
New starter as a spare.
The stress points on the cab have been reinforced with aluminum diamond plate.
Front door jams reinforced.
Oil in the transmission and rear end changed.
New battery

Also have a handful of spare parts that will be included along with a Motorola Mcs2000 25 watt radio that is the radio I got for this car.

The car is a later model and the hour meter shows about 600 hours and when the motor was looked over my mechanic said he believed the hours were correct as the motor was really clean inside. It has been on quite a few runs mostly here around Eastern Ohio and was always reliable. It was my first car and my first rebuild and was a great starter car and will be a great starter for someone who is looking to get into the hobby. The wheels are in great condition and the brakes are still good but will need replaced soon.

The trailer is designed for a speeder and just got new hubs and bearings over the 2019-2020 winter and have only 250-300 miles on them. It also got a new set of tires four years ago. I have also installed new wiring and led lighting in 2018. The trailer has a 3500pound drop axle and tows very well.

The car has spent most of its time out of the weather since I have had it and gets a yearly wax and was washed regularly after trips.

I am located in Eastern Ohio by Youngstown. Due to my work schedule I am unable to provide much in ways of hauling it very far but can discuss it for someone who is interested. I am not getting out of the hobby just looking to get funds for my next rebuild.
