Thanks for the info on the CB&Q Wedron, Ill "derailment" fellows. Give that American - LaFrance's chief facility was
in Elmira, NY during that period it is most likely that the CV 40 ft. autobox was convenient to use and that the new fire
truck was being delivered to some town on the Fox Valley Branch, though this is all conjecture on my part based on my
part based upon what has been learned/found.
Cordially, Don Valentine
