Hi all, I got on Google and did some advanced image searches with boolean and keyword phrases and then just plowed through the first 300 related thumbnail pics looking at everything the spiders retreived.

And, about 230 pics into the search, this image came up
I'll let Andre look at it and make the call as to if he thinks it legit or not!!
Also, there was no URL associated with this pic!! Jim

I haven't a clue.

Quick observations:

The lettering at the top doesn't seem to match the lettering at the bottom. That is, there is no aliasing (smoothing) on the "St.L & NA" part as is evident on the rest of the lettering. This leads me to believe sometime in the digital past someone scanned an M&NA logo and added the StL&NA portion.

However, who really knows?

Ah the fun of learning!

Andre

Whoa, the plot thickens. Could it be? What a great research job Jim. Just outstanding!

You've a good eye, Andre. Yes, the StL & NA does seem to have been added without the anti-aliasing apparent in the rest. Odd thing. Odd, but nice at the same time. Hard to believe there aren't some photos somewhere. Jim did well to unearth this on the net but it's possible what we're really looking for isn't on the net (including eBay) at all.

I have a brother living in Eureka. I should send him on a hunt if he's willing.

Yeah, Andre, I was thinking the same thing when I magnified the logo in irfanview taking a closer look, but wanted to let you see it just in case I stumbled onto something.
I also came across this interesting picture in my searching. Don't know if ST.L&NA ran any logging trains or not and I can't make out any lettering on anything in this pic, but the engine looks like a 2-6-0 or a 4-6-0--its hard for me to tell!!
