Recent Restorations at Snoqualmie

This wood car was built using photos of Fairmont cars as a guide. The wheels came from an old homebuilt push car that was in very bad shape. Though construction was straight forward, much notching was required for a solid frame. The wheel bearings have oiling holes on top, so holes were drilled through the frame and tubes inserted to facilitate adding oil when needed.

Wood push car PC-2 is on display in front of the Snoqualmie depot.

This car was built using the mismatched wheel sets from an old homemade car.

This view shows the simplicity of construction. Only 6 pieces of wood make up the frame.

Simplicity continues, with a pipe handhold and a flat steel draw bar. on each end.
