Hello all.
One of the volunteers at a local History Museum near me has been trying to reassemble a 2 foot gauge dump cart. He's got the chassis and dump bed frame put back together with some trial and error. Now he is left with a pile of little steel fasteners, bolts, and other bits and pieces. We know the car was built by Western Wheeled Scraper. Does anyone have any leads on a catalog of their rail equipment, or perhaps a photo of a complete example of this car?
