Here are 30 photos of various 18", 20" and 24" ore cars and mine cars that I have taken over the years. If there is interest L:   , I will post the other 120 photos of more of the same plus some photos of electric and air powered mine locos that I have taken....

These cars are on blocks, but have wheels under neath. Makes them easier to move
with a forklift....




Note the small extended knuckle cupler on this car.....

Heck yes, post all the photos you can handle! A couple of them look like equipment located in Clifton, AZ.

You are right Woodie, some are from the Clifton area.
Bill Davis and I spent 4 days or so going through Benton, Clifton, Phoenix,
Wickenburg (Vulture Mine), whats left in the Morenci area, etc tracking down
4 of the 5 remaining 20" gauge steamers.
We visited every museum, historical society and lead we could find.

Some photos are from Jerome, AZ; the Empire Mine, CA; Arizona Rail Museum;
Phoenix Mining Museum; Prescott AZ; many small mines in California I have been through.

Even one from the mine I currently work at, though it was from the very early days there.
We have the Sulfide Queen, Birthday 1 & Birthday 2 mines on property (all gold); the Molusk mine right across the I-15 on the mountain side (silver).
