If I found one like that, I would probably buy it. Neat looking. I would do some more research and check here to get others opinions. I don't think it is a very common engine. It would look cool on a homemade motorcycle. Don't scrap it.

From what I can gather, it appears to be a speeder engine for a railroad car. Not sure if itís repairable, or worth anything. Trying to contact NARCOA for more information.
