Motor Car Collectors of America
We hear from all kinds of organizations that are engine-related (and often not engine-related), and one that we thought our readers might find of interest is the Motor Car Collectors of America. In 1986, Mark Mayfield began the group in hopes of organizing the small but growing group of individuals concerned with the restoration and operation of an important facet of railroading. Mark notes that readers interested in Buda, Kalamazoo, Fairbanks-Morse and Sheffield as well as Fairmont motorcars may wish to give this organization a try. The Collectors organize meets so the members can let their cars run, and they have a quarterly newsletter, The Speeder. If you own a railway motor car or are interested in track speeder and section cars, you may wish to give the MCCA a try. $8.00 a year buys a membership, a sample copy of The Speeder is available for $2.00.
