The Arcata and Mad River Railroad crew/speeder car is a restored maintenance of way vehicle that traveled along the railways in Korbel. Originally used for getting the logging crews out into the woods, crew speeder cars were a quick and efficient way to travel. Timber Heritage volunteers restored the A&MRR in 2009 and THA began offering rides in the summer of 2009. The winter of 2016-2017 the speeder was overhauled and the rides are even smoother!
