Looks like maybe a cab from a crane or other construction equipment.   Nice patina.   Kind of reminds me of something from a steam shovel.

Rail motor car/track speeder I am almost certain.  Lots of neat history on these things and collectors.  Fairmont was the biggest builder. They had a bunch of different styles some looking very much like American LaFrance fire trucks and others like a butchered K100.  Being in Maine, it might have wandered over from Canadian National (Central Vermont)  RR which had oodles of these with big enclosed cabs like this. 

 

But...I could be wrong.....

 

Neat find!

Wow, thanks for the responses guys. I cant find the exact model, but it does seem to be a speeder. 

 

I would love to get it and build a garden in/around it. If only I were in Maine. Thanks again guys!

HMMMMM.....I don't think it is a henway.  I think it is a really rare Cowsay.
