This is a 0-4-0 camelback switcher. It was sold by The Ho Train Company of Philadelphia PA. This one has a mix up with its road name, or reflects a company in Transition. I won't be keeping it that way.

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.

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.

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?

**  Here is a name few people know about, "Lawrence Line". I also know little about it. I know they cast GP-7 bodies in Bronze. I know their place of business was 1668 Euclid St. Santa Monica California. They like many casting companies worked with, developed, and purchased drives for their line, from Lindsay. I don't know what else they may have produced for I have only seen, and have their model of the GP7. Three of them!

A more well known French Train Manufacturer is JOUEF. years ago I had a small 2-8-0 made by them that gave good service for a long time. After that in a trade, I acquired a Jouf NORD Pacific which I still have and it still runs well. Recently I got an SCNF electric motor. Looking at it in comparison to a steam loco you would say it is a Northern type 4-8-4. With electric types, you refer to non-powered trucks numerically, and powered ones alphabetically. So the 4-8-4 becomes a 2D2. So I have an SNCF 2D2 electric motor. Here is a photo of it.
