Long Description:
This speeder was manufactured by Fairmont Railway Motors Ltd. in Toronto ON. It is belt driven and has a single cylinder, water cooled engine of approx 6-8 hp. Unfortunately, I can't say which model or series this is. It is parked on the western edge of the exhibits behind the Midway Station house. It was doubtless a CPR vehicle all of its working life.

I assume that Fairmont Railway Motors Ltd. of Toronto ON is a Canadian subsidiary of Fairmont Railway Motors Inc., of Fairmont, Minnesota.

The museum is on the north side of Highway 3, just a bit west of the town of Midway.
