Re: Brewery Locomotive ID

Friends,

Thank you to Charlie and Brian for the help. I had already tried a variation of the search Charlie suggested and didn't get good results. With his suggestion, I tried again with a different structure and got a site which answered the question: https://www.brewerygems.com/lucky.htm . It is indeed at the Lucky Lager brewery in Vancouver, Washington.

Brian is right in that the machine is a Mack, and of 1927 vintage. And I agree, it likely is an AC "Bulldog", though some other Macks also had chain drive (Models AP and FN were two). I had that part. And for our faithful Moderator/Sheriff, this thing batted around freight cars for many, many years. It even seems to have a coupler on its rear end.

Yours Aye,

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.

Friends,

 

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.


Yours Aye,
