	Have you looked for as-built photos of the Geeps that the NYC
bought for the CSR from the C&O for use in Canada? Contact a Mr Bill Sharpe
in Hamilton, ON ( 9 Windermere Ave). He's a good friend of mine and would
likely have photos.  Email Lance Brown(a CPR RTC), also of Hamilton, at
/ou1=bro0244_ -AT- mhs-merlin.attmail.com  to ask him to look thru his late
dad's photo collection. He literally LIVED at E&O Tower and took lots of
roof shots. Frank Butler, the last E&O Tower operator is still alive and
well. Both Bill and Lance know how to contact him. He has lots of info too.
