The Spider is one of several EBT single cylinder MOW cars. It may have originally been a handcar that was converted to gas power.

It was restored to service by Bruce Saylor of the FEBT around 1984. It still runs and is run during some Fall Spectaculars. Built from spare parts, the motor was purchaced from Fairmont Railway Motors.
