This N21 cab I bought has a San-O-Cab heater. Searching ole google isn't yielding much on them. Anybody out their familiar with them?

Is it a Vapor in disguise?

Thanks

I have data on a heater used in a 25 ton GE switcher made by Kysor heater company. Will this help?

I have no idea. This is in a CR caboose.

Try contacting the Conrail or Erie Lackawanna Historical Societies. You might something there. I can find nothing on San-O-Cab as a manufacturer. Maybe it was a product line of a kerosene heater maker.

"Today we fired up 24029's San-O Cab Heater for the first time in years. Next is to bleed the fuel lines between the tank and the first valve before the stove and it will be ready for use. Thanks to Steve Huse and his brother for spending the day crawling around on the floor helping me with this."

I will try the EL folks. CRHS has yet to respond to my previous inquiries so they must be busy.

San-O-Cab Div Walton Products INC Broomall PA was the manufacturer. The only Walton Products company I see on the web has only been in business 25 years or so.

Here's the model serial tag.

Will try to post a picture of the stove tomorrow.

Some background that might provide clues, and other owners who might be able to assist:

Hmmmm.... That looks familiar. We may have one or more of those. I'll have to check our cabooses. We have three ex-Conrail cabs of PRR & NH heritage.
