Hi John and List Members,
 
Is the locomotive crane likely to be self-propelled? That is to ask, can it move down the track under its own power?

Claus,

A “locomotive crane” by definition is self-propelled. ;)  Given that I can see what appear to be drive shafts under it, that certainly seems to be the case. 

Regards

Yes, it can move itself, plus several cars, depending on size and tractive effort.That's why they call it a "locomotive crane".

The number for this gondola is "D32257".

I have looked on the CASO web site and don't see any information about a letter "D" preceding the road number.

Any information would be welcomed.

What are those 3 things that look like brake wheels on the side of the frame?

"D" means one wear, cast iron wheels were applied to the cars. The D really isn't part of the car's number; it's an early car accounting notation from the days when "modern" appliances were new to the industry. It's also railroad specific to the Lake Shore.

They're part of the mechanism for the car's drop doors.
