Ft. Eustis permitted a trackcar excursion on September 13. 2014. We put on at the engine house, rode all of the remaining track in the morning, stopped for lunch in the club at the golf course, and then ran the tracks again in the opposite direction in the afternoon. Also had a guided tour of the dock area and looked at the maritime equipment. There were about fifteen speeders on the excursion and one hand pumper which didn't get very far given the effort required to propel it. I took a shot at pumping for a few minutes and after which I was happy to get back my friend's motorized car.
