Re: Brewery Locomotive ID

The photo appears to show chain drive on the truck.  Assuming the 1927 date is accurate, the cab and radiator indicate that this is probably an AC model Mack.

I googled “Lucky Vancouver Railroad Brewery” and it returned the Lucky Lager the first beer produced by the 1934  General Brewing Company in California which formed a strategic partnership with Coast Breweries in Vancouver Island, BC and other Canadian breweries.   It expanded in the 50’s and 60’s as Lucky Lager Brewing Company in Vancouver WA….which is likely the venue for the photo.

Indulge me a bit here. This isn't strictly about freight cars, but I've spent hours trying to ID the attached photo of a 1927 Mack truck used as a switching locomotive I shot sometime in the 1960s. It was at a brewery in Oregon or Washington.


Any help would be appreciated.
