The Rocky Mountain Division of the TCA is processing collections for upcoming auctions and the piece in the photo below was submitted. The chassis appears similar but not identical to a Voltamp 2130 Steeple Cab. The body is homemade and has the characteristics of a steeple cab. Also, the position of the body mounting screws suggests a Voltamp connection. Can anyone provide some insight on this interesting piece?
The RMD Fall auction catalog of nearly 700 lots is set and includes a variety of trains and related items. Lionel and Flyer prewar are well represented.
