IH had their own switch engines at Farmall Works, East Moline Combine Works and probably Canton Works. I remember they were EMD switchers, probably either SW-600 or SW-900 models. I don't remember if they were red or black but I do remember they had a big IH on each side of the hood. There may have also been one at Memphis Works but I don't ever recall seeing it if there was.

In addition to the works's switching locomotives, IHC also had a corporate airplane in the late 40's and early 50's. It was a silver DC-3 with a big IH painted on each side of the vertical tail. One time when the airplane was at the old Greenville, Mississippi Municipal Airport, the pilot accidentally taxied off of the paved parking apron and got stuck in the mud. The plane had to be pulled out with tractors from the dealership.

In earlier times, ie 20's, 30's and 40's, several of the IHC's works had their own steam engine switchers.

If anyone wants to make a model of the real 50's & 60's era IHC Works switchers, they should have either a SW600 or SW900 model. It can be painted either solid black or solid red. The real ones probably started out black and were repainted red later on. Place a large IH decal almost the full height of the hood centered on either side of the hood. The locomotive number was on the cab under the window but I don;t remember the number series so you can use the number of your choice. This will make a very close copy of the Farmall, East Moline, Canton, and possaby other Works switchers of the 50's and 60's era.

At the bottom of my first post in this tread there is a link to the site where I got the train from. Yes it is one of those installment deals, every so many weeks (not exactly sure how many) they send another piece

What you have is a powered A unit and a unpowered "dummy" B unit in the world of trains.

Any idea of who made those units?

Pretty cool set. For a model train nut/correct police it wouldn't be anything special to down right criminal. The cars with the drop center are far to new to have been behind an F7. Plus they didn't run 6 wheel trucks in that day.

Now me I own 2 IH/Farmall tractors, 1206 and an M. Plus the Ford 8N. So what did I get for Christmas a few years ago? A JD train set :blink: ....
