FOR SALE (Aug 3, 2020) Ohio - Fully restored Woodings cbi - For sale 6500.00

Finally time to let my Woodings CBI with the 18hp motor go up 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.

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 car 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 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 also have a trailer if someone is interested in a package deal. I am not getting out of the hobby just looking to get funds for my next rebuild.

Please no scammers

FOR SALE (Jun 13, 2020) New Hampshire - a MOTOROLA Mobile Radio 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. The ASTRO SPECTRA, MCS-2000 and CDM-1550 radios are also 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.

I have a selection of reconditioned Aviation Intercoms and Noise Canceling Headsets to make your trips more enjoyable and less stressful. I have developed an Intercom Interface Box to connect any MOTOROLA Mobile Radio to a standard Aviation Intercom.

Please inquire regarding price and delivery of a Mobile Radio, Aviation Intercom, Headsets or replacement parts. Note – It is possible to start with just an Intercom for 2 people and later add a Mobile Radio for full communications with the excursion. Also 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.

FOR SALE (May 18, 2020) Minnesota - Safety and Railroad stickers - Safety and Railroad stickers - - These stickers are heavy duty weatherproof vinyl. The price of the original Fairmont "Careful Man" plaques has gotten ridiculous and a couple other stickers are not available so I had some made up. The CN sticker is a different version of the Fairmont sticker and the "Crying Deer" fire sticker is one used by BC Rail. The original BC Rail stickers were clear so the background color would show through. I've got them in clear and with a white background. I also had an 8x8 inch version made with a white background. The original BC Rail "Crying Deer" was 4x4 inch and the "Careful Man" stickers are the original 4 1/2 inch size. I just added a Rio Grande Vista Dome sticker that's 8 inches tall by 7 inches wide. It's on clear weatherproof vinyl and I spaced the "Vista Dome" script up just a little so it can be trimmed off if not wanted, when trimmed it's 5 inches tall and 7 wide.
The 8x8 sticker and Rio Grande stickers are $5.00 and all the rest are $3.00. Shipping in stiff cardboard envelopes so they don't get bent up, is $4.00 for any size order.

If you use PayPal put your name and address in the "notes" section.
