Dave-that looks like a Plymouth. Next, we will see how to get larger photos but it looks like you found the "G" spot..!!

The photos are too small for my old eyes, but it is definitely not a Plymouth. Looks to be maybe a Davenport. Need larger shots to be sure.

I played around with the image. Hood, headlite, chassis seem like Plymouths, but I'm no expert. Funaro & Camarlengo have a dummy resin Plymouth kit -- a guy did one up in RMC a year or so ago. I suddenly think the one in my closet could make a flat car load!

Definitely a Whitcomb. The larger shot did it.

I agree, a Whitcomb. Dave scanned the old photos and sent them, that's why they are small. The old rail truck photos he gave me were done a bit differently. I took digital photos of them and then cropped the excess and posted them. I am a digital doofus so I found that way through the "back door". What a great flat car load.

Dave-that's much mo' better! What a beauty this is/was. It would make a great narrow gauge lokie also. I think Rich Yoder has one in brass O scale...sure it's a chunk o' change.

I have a 25 ton Porter in a resin kit (standard or narrow gauge) that makes a great flat car load

Tom not sure if your post is a suggestion or a ad.

No it could not possible be a advert that would be against our policy.

This critter was one of two or three that used to work the extensive dual gauge(standard & 2' Gauge)tie yard at Denison,TX. I'm not sure if the two guage is still there, but there is great footage of it in the DVD Courting Miss Katy.
