Default Speeder Engines

Hi, my names Vernon and I'm VERY new to this hobby, but anxious to become heavily involved.
Mt granddad was a section gang leader on the A&EC railroad and I grew up hearing his Speeder run back and forth.
I want to locate and get a Speeder type engine running and am looking for sources of information and suggestions as to which model might be most easily located, repaired, and cost effective to purchase.
Leads on engines also appreciated. I have machine tools etc. to make parts so even incomplete engines may be of interest. I am in North Carolina and have a truck that can go at least 1000 miles w/o getting home sick.
Thanks for any help you may be able to give!

You are in luck. You have one of the very top guys,in regard to rail speeders & fairmont engines, in the country located in your state.His name is Carey Boney, located in Wallace,N.C. If you Google his name, just as I spelled it, his contact info. will all come up. I have 2 Fairmont engines, an RQ & a QH....I must say they are different.

The links lead to a large list of places I can go to at least HEAR then run, but I still want to own one -- Were all the engines reversible two strokes?
