Anybody know the J&H Railroad ?

Seems there is a mechanism for turning the car underneath the cab.

The Jacksonville & Havana was a RR in Illinois.

All data here.


That fulcrum could be lowered mechanically,

to turn the vehicle around,

travelling in reverse gear was no option.

Helmut

I am impressed,
my websearch was a dud.

Such devices to turn railtrucks (and busses)
seem to have been the usual arrangement.

Austrian Federal RRs
had this on its respective vehicles too.

No further info on this car...

Seems to have a tube radiator hanging from the front,
and a BIG trolley gong on the sash.

Wonder if the muffler was so effective,
that it needed a oversize gong ?

Might be the Ohio & Mississippi Ry.

The O&M is famous for being the first site of a train robbery in the USA.

BTW, did anyone notice the 'Erie' (6ft) gauge track the car is standing on ?

The train robbery sprang out,

when I investigated what O&M might stand for.


Didn't recognize that this is Erie broad gauge,

rather suspected some indescript home built trackage.
