Photo of the “Canary”

Here’s a photo of the “Canary” “rail bus” that was mentioned in the last post. Thanks to Scott of aroundcarson.com for sending this in and giving us some visual perspective. Scott’s comment,

“Here’s a photo of the Canary. From the looks of it, I would have bet on the cows.” This one was reprtedly painted yellow, thus the moniker “Canary”.

Several of these hybrid bus/railroad engines were used on the V&T to save $$$ and keep the road profitable.
