Next mystery is trying to figure out the identity of this LGB Rack loco,
I think it is a model of a Pikes Peak cog loco. Most Mt Washington cog locos have a tender.
The mechanism is LGB and I suspect most of the parts are as well.
It is reported to have been custom built but from what.
Does it have a single cog wheel under the loco?
Most likely the mechanism is from LGB’s first cog locomotive available circa 1985.
I am pretty sure this was custom built by New Hampshire Garden Railway member George Konrad.
I first saw it or a VERY similar one at a nursery in the southeast of Boston.
One of the members of the NHGRS might know how to contact him in his new location in California.
I had some pictures but they are on some old hard drive somewhere.
Pictures were from around turn of the century:-(
