SpeedersOnce the internal combustion engine evolved with the auto industry small gas powered speeders became as ubiquitous on a logging road as Shays or Mallets. They were used to haul loggers to the logging site, small loads of supplies, as inspection vehicles or fire patrol, and occasionally had to be pressed into ambulance service.
Some speeders were simply an outdated auto on flanged wheels, while others were build as a light flatcar with an auto engine and transmission attached.
