Fairmont S2-F Motorcar Restoration for the Rosenberg Railroad Museum, Rosenberg, Texas

This Fairmont Motorcar S2-F, serial number 176001, was built in December, 1945 for the Texas City Terminal Railway.
It is unclear when the car was retired from active railroad service or exactly how The George Ranch came to own the car.
In 1993, The George Foundation auctioned off the car, and the purchaser intended to donate it to the then young Rosenberg Railroad Museum.
The motorcar did not make the move to the museum until 2003, where it has been on display since that time.

This website is to chronicle the restoration of this motorcar to operational condition.
