Dear humble and respectful (both of you)

 

The records of George D Whitcomb of Rochelle, Illinois, USA, indicate that in May 1924 he supplied a Model MO 7-ton 4-wheel petrol locomotive with a Waukesha engine fitted with 24” driving wheels to Gilbert & McAuliffe, Melbourne for David Mitchell Estate, Cave Hill, Lilydale.

The locomotive’s gauge was recorded as 36” (ie 3ft)

 

Diligently
