Attached is a picture of a switcher from Dyer Quarry's website. I'm trying to ID the make/model just for the sake of knowing. I can't find any other pictures or information online because it is generally buried behind the ballast hoppers it is loading on private property. For those unaware, Dyer Quarry is a stone quarry between Birdsboro and Gibraltar along the Reading Belt Line, now known as the NS "Turkey Path." (Hmm, I wonder if its been sunk recently with a Pennsy switcher? :-) Too far?)

According to Jay Reed's "Comprehensive Guide To Industrial Locomotives - Third Edition", it's an 80-ton Whitcomb (61271, 1/53), ex-Warner Co. same location. Another source indicates the model is an 80DE21. Here's a nice shot of it http://tinyurl.com/hpyqaua
