Louisiana & North Western Railroad Doodlebug #M-300 SOLD


Built by the Brill Company as a demonstrator in 1925 as M-75 (Brill #22323) and displayed at the 1926 Chicago's Worlds Fair. Sold in 1925 to the Columbus & Greenville Railroad. Retired by the C&G in 1930 and sold to the Louisiana & Northwest Railroad, who renumbered the car M-300. L&NW retired the car in 1948 and sold it into private ownership. The car no longer has an engine or the correct trucks but the car body is in very good condition and basically original. In the last several years the car has received a new roof, new floor and new windows. It was originally equipped with two segregates coach sections and a baggage/Railway Post Office. M-300 was powered by a 175 HP power truck gas engine and had a small engineers compartment at the front of the car. This is a very RARE and unique car that is steeped in history. Would make a great addition to any museum or collection.
