Odd trucks on that one...?

Indeed they are, and also I have no idea what kind they are either.

An Optimist sees light at the end of the tunnel

A Realist sees a freight train

The Train engineer sees 3 idiots standing on the rails

What luck! My dance card's full! :-). However, tell me, do those windows in the monitor roof really swing outward hinged from alternating sides?  It looks like it, and so when they are open they form four "Vs".

I've never seen monitor windows that before -- only ones that are hinged at the top.  This current design would seem to limit the airflow more.  Plus, there are only four pairs.

Interesting.

Tomlinson Run Railroad

UPDATE:  It's hard to see in the photo above, but mwb's post from yesterday shows the windows from the side view and they are nicely centered.  So unusual trucks and windows?

They do appear to be hinged just as you note.  Only car I've seen like that as well, but then again there are probably others out there..............

Yes, a very interestingly detailed car -- could model just about all, but I need to ask about on those sideframes......
