FOR SALE (Jan 6, 2021) California - FULL FEATURE SPEEDER INTERCOM SYSTEM -

I have for sale full feature intercom systems for speeder cars. There systems are made by the David Clark Company of Worcester, Mass. They are the very 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 models I sell are made exclusively for motor vehicles so they work perfectly in speeders. These systems provide complete radio communication as well as personal conversation between operator and passengers. All functions of the radio go through the intercom, both transmit and receive. David Clark intercoms are known for their clear, sharp audio as well as over-the-air broadcasts. These systems are designed to work with most commercial radios but they also can be used as a dedicated intercom only.

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

FOR SALE (Oct 31, 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.

Please call or write with any Questions !

SOLD! (Oct 5, 2020) Illinois - A4 Gang Car for Sale - SOLD - This car is part of a number of cars that I am listing for sale. I am clearing out the herd. This car has not been run in many years (but does turn over). This car has the 134CID 4 cylinder Ford Tractor engine. When a battery was placed on the cables, the engine does turn over. This car is complete, but will need to have the ceiling and side plywood replaced. All brake rigging seems to be there, as well as rear end, trans and all engine parts. The wheels are 1/4” plus thick on all four. I am asking $1000 for the car as is. This car could be parted out and a LOT more gotten from the parts (i.e., wheels, rear end, engine, etc.) This is a good rebuild project car, and not bent or mangled. The only bent part is the “Front bumper” which is removable and replaceable black pipe. I have an identical A4 in the garage nearing completion. More pictures available on request. This car could be remade into a small switcher locomotive looking car or Thomas Tank engine type car. Any questions, ask. You will need to pick it up and haul it. Thanks for looking.

SOLD! (Oct 5, 2020) Illinois - Canadian MT14 Project Car for Sale - SOLD For Sale (IL): Fairmont MT14 Pumpkin car. This car is part of a number of cars that I am listing for sale. I am clearing out the herd. This car has not be run in many years. I was told it was running when placed in storage, but have not tried to attach a battery. (So not sure of the CCKB.) Alternator is missing off the engine. It appears that someone has taken the brake rigging, before I got the car. The inside handle lever and all down to the sides is there, but brake pads and rods missing. The wheels are ¼” plus all around. I am asking $600 for the car. One door is off, but is inside the car. The hinge screws came off. The car has been tarped for the past three years. The fiberglass looks to be in reasonable condition for its age. (I am guessing late 70’s vintage.) More pictures available on request. You will need to pick it up and haul it. I might be able to haul it within 100 miles or so if price is right. Any questions, ask. Thanks for looking. Scammers – do not bother!!!
