Frank - I was referring to the Ashland coal and iron engine. Industry lettered engines are seen less.  
 
I know those Reading speedsters - they are works of art and could really pull those Atlantic City expresses on the PRSL. - great looking engine.

Would you settle for a photo of The Ashland coal Co. 0-8-0 pushing loaded coal cars to the Coaling tower.

Thanks Frank these are very good photos. On my layout I have two coal company lettered diesels that switch the coal loader.  I would also like to add a steam engine and a sloped tender engine like is one I am considering.  
 
Nice assortment of coal cars - the C&EI with the "billboard" lettering  really stands out. - Varney?

It would be an 0-6-0 or 0-8-0, something with a small tender. I know I will find something that will fit the bill. I'm now considering something very much like your Ashland Coal engine.

 Nice photos NEFAN. The express reefers look at home behind what I think is a AHM pacific.

Thanks. It is Rivarossi and one of my favorite engines as it will pull as many cars as you can couple to it.

*  A look at a Marx HO GP7 Locomotive. It is a real Marx paint scheme. It looks like they changed there mind, and didn't want a UP GP7.

One of the two engines from the train show at Edison NJ last weekend. Hornby Streamlined A4 Silver Fox. Was recorded running at 113 mph pulling the train Silver Jubilee.

 For those people who like the smaller locomotives here are a few oldies but goodies that I have that are still running. American Flyer, in HO known as A.C. Gilbert made a couple of small diesels. I have a pair of the blue industrial diesel switchers. They are arranged on a display track so you can see both sides at the same time.  
* Gilbert 31021

* This is the other small diesel they made. It is harder to find and prices can get very high. I got lucky ( $15.) or it wouldn't be here, shared with you.

* Here I go from Gilbert's smallest to it largest locomotive. The Hudson ! This one, cab number 5318, is the first Hudson made with a 12DC motor with a vertical shaft for Gilbert. Gilbert #151. The small number make this a early release. This Hudson had a smoke system in the tender. Smoke came up to the sack through a hose running from the tender to the smoke stack. What do you think of the white walled tires?
