These were retrieved from Saxon's Boat House (THUNDERBIRD) at Camp Richardson, Lake Tahoe.     The axle was not used when he built a carriage for the "THUNDERBIRD) yacht/speedboat.      The carriage would be run down tracks. in the water under the boat, and after fastening the boat to the carriage, the boat could be wheeled up into the boat house.     The wheel/axle assembly was leftover when the carriage was modified once upon a time.

The crank axle is most difficult part of handcars to obtain or fabricate in one piece.   Key element needed to construct a handcar or track velocipede.    There are drawings for the parts in Maintenance-Of-Way Dictionaries, etc.      Each piece is about 5 & 1/2 feet long and prefer buyer pick up in zip 95713.   Or, tell me your zip and we will bring it to UPS and find out cost for UPS Surface to your zip.
