You have an old railroad maintenance car with a Fairmont engine. If you can acquire it for a few hundred $$$'s I would. There are clubs that restore these and run them on abandoned track or on active route where they can get permission on weekends when there is no traffic.

Yeah I'd like to get it,Been thinking about a way to put a carrige under it so it could be steered and run in parades.I think it had the mag yet but I see in the pic that the water jacket might be cracked.I didn't get a real good look at it the other day.
