Re: looking for machinery reference book recommendations

Given the railroad-specific nature of much of this machinery, I’d suggest contacting the nearest railroad or trolley museum and getting in touch with their maintenance department. Odds are that they can put you in touch with an old-timer volunteer who can provide “chapter-and-verse” information about the items in question — and may also be able to suggest good homes for any of the equipment that falls beyond the scope of your own collection.

Good luck!
