We dont have an loading and unload facilities for the 12", so i'm sure how we could run your Ottaway.

We are planning on opening for a limited amount this year with the first Saturday after Memorial Weekend being the first.

I'm going to take a stab and say that the B40 was built by Rail Systems Co - Mr Munson. It was pictured on their website some years back with the same paint but minus the decals. And just for GP I jumped over and looked at his website and the picture after he was finished with it is still featured.
By the way, Mark Reardon here of Guymon Lions club with MTC G16 number 606. I have also attached a picture of the 16"gauge ballast car we finished recently.
