I am reorganizing this site to have pictures
with the handcar over the San Lorenzo river bridge, trestle,
and other various points of the railroad.
I'll be making updates, changes and keeping
a log of different places and distances by handcar.
Furthermore, I will try to have history about handcars as I find it, you can send me info, pictures, stories, etc as well.
Also, plans in .JPG format instead of the tarfile gzip file.
This handcar is also available for charity (i.e., demos).
You must provide a letter for permission on the rails (if it is
in the FRA domain), insurance, etc. The rails must be owned by someone
or the company whom has ownership/juristriciton of the railroad property.
I have a release form that can be modified according to your
railroad at, but you'll need the password to download this doc
(send me an e-mail for the password):
The car has been used many times for rides and can be used for funraisers
non-profit groups. Sponsored event are allowed as well. Also,
available for filming, commercials or other such needs.
These have been requests from the past.
