Anyone got any photos of these?   Dave Vos in MN is looking for a referance for a model.

The cars in question were built in two groups by the Mount Vernon Car Manufacturing Co. with 52000-52049 built ca. 10-38 and 52050-52149 built ca. 1-42. 

A photo of Southern 52049 was published in the 1940 and 1943 Car Builders’ Cyclopedia. A digital image is available for purchase from the Archives of Canada, Andrew Merrilees Collection. The view is a 3/4-B MVC builder photo, built 10-38. 

A photo of Southern 52129 was published in a MVC catalogue (page 20) that is on the STMFC web site. 

Hope this helps.
