Skagit Speeder No. 30

SKAGIT STEEL & IRON WORKS

SEDRO WOOLLEY, WASHINGTON

Most of the following information is from a typed note book kept
by Mr. Splane, a Skagit field engineer.  It looks to have been compiled
in the early 1940's and up dated into the mid-1950's.  The models are
derived from the number of engine cylinders and the tractive effort.  A
4-40 would have a four cylinder engine and develop 4000 lb. of tractive
effort, ect.
