This railcar was photographed in Venesuela:




I don't know the origin of this next one:

I agree--it looks like a poorly made toy car!

Brookville made many different models using Ford components, starting back in the model T days, and continuing on until the second World War--so that very well may be a factory job.

I love the railroad name-"KEEP OFF!" Looks like something I need to model...

Ah, I didn't know that! Thanks. Since reading your post, I have found photos of other Brookville locos that were similar.

I've saved the Model A Ford/Brookville image. I'm going to do some more research on it too. That looks like a good candidate for a first scratch built loco project.

Thanks for posting it!
