|No. 3240 Locomotive|
Circa 1912 - 1916 - Early examples of the 3240 have the chains connecting the two trucks. The bodys are formed from 8 separate pieces. At least one example of the above locomotive has been observed with green trim and was found with three cherry red cars lettered for the PENNSYLVANIA.
Enlarged photo of early (bottom) and late (top) - besides the chains and non-aligned axles on the early example note the 'ear lobes on the side of each truck on the end.
The example above is early with the chains, offset axles, and note the 'ears' on the end of each truck.
This one has a chain on the front truck and one from the bell. We've never seen another like this and didn't examine this one personally, so it's just a picture.
This is a late 3240 - you can tell as there's not cab windows on the end. Below is a look at this engine, showing the power truck and the pickup on the dummy truck.
