S&N Boxmotor by Charles Smiley of Porter Ranch, CA.

Charles Smiley of Porter Ranch, California, built this S&N Boxmotor some 35 years ago and recently replaced the SPUD drives with a Hollywood Foundry drive system.

This photo shows the supplied mechanism kit built into the Boxmotor floor. It uses a 1626 dual-flywheel motor and a 22:1 Belt drive. Charles says it pulls 6 brass cars up a grade on a 34" radius curve.
