Type Model-T Roadster
Acquisition Donated

Model T Ford Motorcar 23 is a representative example of the typical light transportation vehicles used on logging railroads. They were used to take staples or “the boss” to the logging camps and for track inspection. The Sierra Railroad used a similar car, which they still have.

Our car is built from a 1923 roadster. The trunk has been removed and replaced with an era wooden pick-up bed. The front and rear axles have been adapted with Fairmont 20” wheels.

WPRM acquired Motorcar 23 by donation in 1996.
