I discovered this photo of PC Ry 400 in a pile of photos donated to the SPCRR. It is marked "at San Luis Obispo" and carries a stamp for Paul Darrell of Richmond California...

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!

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 no battery installed".

I do believe that a similar view is published in the book about the Pacific Coast Railway by Wescott and Johnson. The book has several views of the truck.
