More of Railbus Engine

Historians have reported for years that the current engine in the Diamond & Caldor No. 10 Tally Ho Railbus is a Studebaker. Long-time volunteer and current foundation vice-president Keith Berry said many went along with the historical record until recent examination of the engine proved otherwise.

Sometime last year, board member Ed Cuhna had a chance to examine the engine. After some web-based research, Ed reported that it appears to be a Stuart (or Stewart) Marine engine.

While we still need to determine the model number and other important details on the engine, Ed's discovery has helped imensily. I'll report back when I can talk to Ed and get more details.
