Fairmont M-19 Speeders

Auto Credit Based on RailfanEthan's Fairmont Engine

This might be the most fun you can have in under 100 parts... for trains, anyways.

I'd like to thank randomusername for attempting to help build the engine, and MrSilverWolf for listening to the loudest thing in SP

.

Info
Fairmont motor cars (aka gang cars, speeders, put-puts) are small rail cars powered by a 2 cycle 2 cylinder engine, usually built by Waekusha. Speeders were used for track inspection and maintenance, and were used in North America from the early 1910's until the late 90's when high rail trucks started taking over. Thousands of Fairmonts were built, with most of them still in operating condition under private ownership.

.

How to use
7 activates engine
Trim is throttle
8 disables main lights
1 enables yard beacon
2-4 are different engine speeds

This train is meant for railway mod maps, however it can be used on terrain as well. Yaw steers the front wheels. It doesn't have any suspension, so you might have to enable it on the wheels for proper off rail use.

    @Zanedavid Around 50mph, but the wheels kind of grind on the rails on these making them top out around 25 in game
