Our new touring handcar was displayed at Cal Poly Pomona. Hundreds of students, staff, and industry representatives stopped by to look at the handcar. The university featured the handcar on their Instagram account. Design work on this handcar had begun a year earlier after testing of an earlier prototype did not live up to expectations. Hundreds of hours went into the design of this car along with another 400 hours into its construction.
Mason gave a presentation to the Calpoly Pomona student and faculty. This video offers a great technical overview of the handcar and the care that went into creating it. It is a modern day engineering marvel that pickups in the evolution of handcar development.
