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.

* My new addition to this thread is a pair of Gilbert C&O F3A's # 31025. They are different in their schemes but identical in their numbers, which is an odd thing for Gilbert HO items. I forgot this is where you can only post one photo in one post so I guess I won't do it here. They would look good together in one post and would't look right in two.
 This is one of them the blue and white one. the other is all blue with white lettering.
