Here are all the drawings, text and photos you'll need to build your own 7-1/4" or 7-1/2" gauge (or even 4-3/4" or 5"--or what the heck, all of them!) section car you can ride on at many live steam club and private ride-on scale railroad tracks around the world. Originally published in the August 1984 issue of Modeltec magazine (now out of print). The original article is complete here (reproduced with permission, of course!), plus lots of new ideas, information and photos of Fairmonts real and model. Includes ideas on making an electric-powered Fairmont, a narrow-gauge version, and how several modelers made modifications to the original design. And lots, lots more! Adobe Acrobat format, runs on both Windows and Macintosh OS and you can make print-outs for use in your shop. An easy, relatively inexpensive way to get rolling in the really large scale railroading hobby.
