The TVRR chop nosed geep no 8, I did some years ago as well. This isn’t based on anything really. It is another blue box Athearn concoction with a GE cab, chopped nose and Paducah style air filter yolk. Since the photos were taken some six years ago there has been a change and it now rides on GE trucks. It is assumed both locomotives were re-built in the I&W workshops at Rosston. This incidentally only exists in my imagination. I’d never get planning permission from the household authorities to build it! She is seen in the first picture pushing a Rock Island covered hopper at Benson. Then in the second she is pulling an SP covered hopper out of the yard at Colonel’s Crossing.
