(a Santa Fe Fairmont MT-14 speeder on a small Flatbed Trailer. Image source: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/429812358164648996/) What are speeders? A Speeder, or also often called a Draisine (although that can be unpowered) are small motor cars which can averagely hold 2-4 people, used by work crews and track inspectors, to move swiftly from work site to work site. (A Fairmont MT-19 Speeder's interior. Image source: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37246&whichpage=3) Can I have more info/facts about Speeders, please? Sure you can! Speeders aren't used anymore, as they were replaced by flange wheeled pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles. These were however used throughout the world, including the US, Australia and England (as seen below). (Image source: https://www.jeff-z.com/wks/mow/speeders/speeders.html) And what is this? Also used with speeders are what's called a 'speeder cart', which are flatbed wagons as long and usually with the same wheelbase as a speeder, only unpowered and used for carrying tools for the potential repair they needed to perform when the inspection revealed something broken.

Here's one: (A speeder with its cart. Image source: https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=29085.15) Are they still with us? Not all. Most of them ended up as a scrap heap, but some were preserved by people who use them for adventures on abandoned and/or closed lines. (A Fairmont MT-19 MPL speeder. Image source: http://www.flighttech.com/speeder_intercom.htm) Why for Train Simulator? I think everyone would enjoy speeding along a line, and stopping for some inspection. Why not? These could then include scenarios for various routes, as they were used on lots of lines. Also, there's NOTHING like it in TS. (except for the Permaquip in the IoW DLC) (A Western Maryland and an Amtrak speeder, facing away from each other.

Yes, here are a few: http://www.railridersupply.com/fairmontspeederdetails.htm http://www.sps700.org/gallery/0707OaksParkOPR.shtml https://www.psrm.org/trains/equipment/up-2644/ (Danbury Railway Museum 270302 speeder.

I certainly would. ■ Disclaimer: I do not own any of the media shown here, nor do I claim to. All media belongs to their rightful owners. I just put them in here for illustration purposes.
