Marty - Lodge Members -
 
Concur with your observations. Troop Train movements hardly came with PULLMAN level services. What seen here were
 NYC (WS) trains serving upstate New York? Another oddity in the instant photo? Lower right side, is that some variety of  
a light Whitcomb gas or Diesel switcher?
 
More on this. Anyone steeped in the NY Harbor history could help here. IMHO, may we presume that many of troop ships  
berthed at Bayonne, and possibly at St. Georges (Staten Island)? And, whatever the practices about Pier slots and berthing  
of RMS Queen Mary? It sailed in troop ship assignments...

The steam (smoke) abatement laws were in New York City; this is across the Hudson, in New Jersey. Not covered by those laws (the New York Central was operating steam out of this terminal into the early fifties).
 
I have serious doubts that this has anything to do with troop trains. There appear to be a number of white-jacketed porters standing ready for duty alongside at least two of the trainsets...
 
Waterlevel- just curious; do you have a source for the image?

Here I have put all three die-cast 0-4-0 tankers together. B&O 325 is the original Silvine that is a common locomotive. The other two B&O 62 and NH #60 are the only ones i have ever seen. Does anyone else have either one?

Now another surprise to me. At Allentown first frost I found a 0-4-0t saddle-tank loco New Haven # 60. It is factory painted and the body is a different casting. This makes a third different maybe Silvine type 0-4-0 tanker. It also uses the same drive as B&O 25 and B&O 62.

New One, possibly another Silvine, B&O saddle-tanker, #62. Only knew of this loco for 1 year. I received it in a trade from Catfordken. London, He found it a year ago. I Didn't know of it before then. reply 430 is a repainted Silvine 0-4-0t side-tanker. It was like original reply 396 B&O #25. both locos use an identical drive, pilot, frame, motor, wheels, and rods. This B&O #62 saddle-tank to me is a one of a kind, for I have never seen another one.
