This fully-enclosed Fairmont speeder is formerly Union Pacific #2615. It appears to be in its original paint. It also wears its Fairmont model designation: MT-14. The T indicates a 2-speed car, and the 14 indicates 4 seats. A 2-seat version would be an M-19 or MT-19. A fully-enclosed speeder provided the occupants complete protection from the elements on days with inclement weather, however on hot summer day like this was, the enclosed cab can be very hot and uncomfortable
