(Model 1936 Gibson Speeder #2)

Shuttle cars were used to haul men to the logging operation in the woods. The car was a self-propelled unit with an interior engine powering the rear wheels with a chain drive. With a window on either end, it could travel in either direction and avoid the problem of turning the car around in the woods. Uncomfortable during the best of weather, the men referred to it as a "crummy". This car was a 45-man rig and could climb a 6% grade. It was used in the Blackfoot area by the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. Bill Hartley was its first operator in 1936. The car originally had canvas on the top half of the sides and had no footbreak.
