Many years ago I visited Rick Franklin's yard at Lebanon, OR. This railroad contractor had purchased two wreckers. One, SP #7020, is now at Brooks, OR. The other was a UP 250 tonner and has now been repainted at RFRX 1001. Look down near the bottom here:

I have looked high and low and cannot find the photos or notes I took. The best match I can make is:

Bucyrus-Erie 43893 04-31-47 250t SW

Oregon-Washington Ry & Navigation #0310

Union Pacific #900310 (conv to diesel 1976)

retired 02-02-02 & scrap



From this photo: https://donstrack.smugmug.com/UtahRails ... -83tSnBD/A



The boom construction and window configuration match.



The other candidate is



36211 06-26-45 250t SW Union Pacific #044 to #03044 to #903044

(conv to diesel 06-75 retired 04-89 & scrap)



https://donstrack.smugmug.com/UtahRails ... -Wvf6rP4/A



but the windows don't match.



Any ideas?
