Looks like Pfanstiehl but they usually have a name on them somewhere.

Did this company also make a switch to change from magneto to battery. I have a switch with this company name on it.

Might be railroad speeder.

Call me stupid if you wish, but what the heck is a "railroad speeder?"

Fairmont was one of the more popular brands of track inspection cars around here. The earlier ones I have worked on were one cylinder two cycle engines that could be run in either direction to eliminate the need for a reverse transmission. Just move the spark lever and spin the flywheels in the other direction. Dandy Dave!

I have several really early black bakelite coils to identify, and would like to know a simple way to test them to make sure they work. The same with this coil box; testing it to see if it works.  The coils are from the late teens into the 1930's, none look like the way they ALL were from the later '30s on.
