Yes, I know it's not a contest to find the least esthetically pleasing rail car, but if it were, I'd have a submission here. This is one of several "speeders" built to operate on the PGE (Portland General Electric) Little Sandy River Flume railroad. This one and one of it's sisters are currently held in the care of the OERHS (Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society). This photo is from a training session for volunteer operators (aka motormen) this past summer on the Willamette Shore Trolley (ex-SP Jefferson Street branch) between Portland and Lake Oswego. Read about the history of the flume railroad here:

I kinda like that one. Looks like it was made from a small travel trailer?

These photos are just engrossing (or some such 25 cent word). Thanks for the photos Jose & Dennis, if I had a couple of more lifetimes maybe I could build some. That Russkie car is really a hoot!
