The Velocipede was used as a track inspection device in the early days of railroading.  An operator would get on the seat of the Velocipede and push and pull the Velocipede to make it run on the track.  It was an early version of the motorcar with no motor.  This was a difficult job, especially when this unit was reportedly from the Algoma Central Railroad which was in Upper Michigan and Canada.  This Velocipede was purchased originally from the St. Charles (Chicago) railroad show in the mid 1980’s.  The wood is original.  It was completely disassembled by myself in the fall of 2022.  The Velocipede was repainted in the color (faded) that I received it in.  Because of the wooden construction, many did not survive.  The Velocipede comes apart for ease of transport.  I will consider an offer.
