Who Made It?

Gentlemen,

This photo is from the 14th Naval District Collection dated 1919 at Pearl Harbor. I've cropped and autocorrected the original. Any idea, based on the design of these boxcars what company they may have come from?

Re: Pacific Coast Ry motor

Took the liberty of reposting the photo (with proper citation) on the Model T Ford Forum. Mr. David Stroud replied "Twenty six/seven with the long "boot scraper" running boards. Electric start model with no side lights and has brackets for battery box behind left running board, but appears to have n...

Re: Pacific Coast Ry motor

Great photo Randy,

This make three Ford Model TT rail vehicles I've seen, the OR&L's one in Australia and this one. Any year or other information? I love the sanders!

Re: OR&L Builders drawings

Curtis, First off, sorry, no drawings of No. 111. Not well received by the OR&L crews and pulled the garbage train until the train got to big for it and she was replaced by a 2-8-2. Seldom used after that. We're trying to put together a listing of the available drawings but there is a huge amount of...

Searching for a Photograph

The Hawaiian Railway Society (HRS) recently purchased two photographs from the collection of the late Kennrth Clyde Jenkins from a seller on eBay. The photographs are of two ex-mainland narrow gauge passenger cars lettered "U.S. Navy Yard Pearl Harbor". HRS received negative numbers 120920 and 12092...

Re: OR&L Builders drawings

HRS is growing and changing for the better. However, we don't have these drawings, they belong to Bishop Museum. Nobody, including Bishop had a good inventory of the Dillingham Collection, just a general one such as General Manager's Orders - 5 boxes, General Letters 1889-1972 - 80 Boxes, Superinten...

Re: OR&L Builders drawings

Not sure where the quote came from but, yes, the Bishop Museum holds a number of sets of locomotive plans within the Dillingham Collection. Among them are the 2-8-2's (OR&L Nos. 60, 70, 80 and 90), 4-6-0 (OR&L Nos. 85 and 87) and 0-6-0 (OR&L No. 12) plus others. The drawings are un-cataloged and run...

Re: This Time a Dump Car

Thanks Brian,

Sent Randy high resolution photos which he passed to Kyle Wyatt who thinks they may be William J. Oliver Manufacturing Co. products. With the lmited resources available in Hawaii I'm depending more and more on the web and the brain trust here.

Re: This Time a Dump Car

Randy,

Here are two more photos of the dump cars. These taken in 1923. Note the name change from the 1914 photo. I'll also send you the full sized images.

This Time a Dump Car

Another unknown manufacturer. In early 1913 the Navy advertized for bids for thirty, twenty yard dump cars for the coaling plant at Pearl Harbor. They ended up buying only fifteen. We think that these cars were made by either Kilbourne & Jacobs or Western Wheeled Scraper. Any further ideas? PHOG_NO ...
