ASK QUESTIONS FIRST, HONEST ANSWERS WAITING

These two cars were basically intact when received and were in what was then a "routine condition" for motor cars retired by Southern Pacific and brought to Oakland, CA for auction in the early 1990's. These cars were chosen as they were excellent candidates for a return to service however my career changed a short time later and I left California for Kentucky where more modern Hyrail equipment was available and work on these cars was never resumed.

McCloud River Railroad Steam Locomotive Headlight
Once Again, Make An Offer

MCRRR_LITE.JPG (97588 bytes)

This very old and very large headlight shell was rescued a half century ago from the McCloud River Railroad "dump" after the company cleared out the steam-era roundhouse to use the location for a new diesel shop. A comparison with locomotive photographs would seem to indicate that this true railroad antique is the old original oil-burning headlight from the 1891 Baldwin built 2-6-0 Number One.
