Maryland and Pennsylvania Equipment
Posted by 081552 on Monday, March 22, 2004 9:10 PM
I'm trying to identify two photos of M&P equipment. On is a diesel switcher #82 and the other is a doddle bug #62. Can anyone provide some information on this equipment?

Thanks!

According to Hilton's book "the Ma & Pa", motor car (or doodle bug) 62 was built in 1928 by St Loius Car Co., builder's number 347, 440 HP distillate-electric, 122,720 lbs. It was retired in 1955.
