Sperry 121 is possibly preserved somewhere, the building is new type steel consruction, and looks like its in between some retired Class 1 equipment. It is a fascinating photo. Did these operate from both ends? Might be worth a look at the Sperry historic site.

Its self propelled for sure, gasoline or diesel? I like the spoiler type intake on the roof. It must have been loud, hot and smoky in there by the end of its service life!

Edwards Rail car still makes cars like this for the short line and tourist line market.
