Bought a real train! Found this Milwaukee Road 1970 Fairmont MT14L speeder along a garage at a customer's house about a month ago. Said it was for sale and what else, I bought it!
Been restoring Lionel trains for many years so I'm going to restore this beast back to its orginal glory! Looking at a 1-1/2 to 2 year project. Get it up and running and set out on some of the NARCOA (North American Rail Car Operators Association) trips they set up across the United States! See the back country that few people get to see and have fun doing it!
Have it just about torn down, getting parts ready to be blasted, motor and tranny to get rebuilt, painted and start to reassemble!
Suprisingly this is put togather with nuts and bolts and very, very little welding.
A real simple and easy disassembly.
Well know the wife knows where I'll be for the next couple years!
