Motorcars or “speeders” were used by most railroads prior to High Rail trucks and cars that replaced them. The North American Rail Car Owners Association (NARCOA) is a group of owners of motorcars of the past. Jim will show some of the NARCOA excursions he has participated in and what it takes to own and operate a motorcar. If you ever wanted to drive a train, this is the closest it gets without breaking the bank. Jim will also be providing motorcar rides on Thursday at the G&W Railway event.
