If you can identify the manufacturer of this Steeplecab model, please contact the webmaster (Ed K. wants to know). This model is similar to the Hoquat model, but different in many ways. It was made up of several heavy brass castings soldered together with details added. Power pickup was by trolley poles riding on overhead wires. One truck is geared using a Pittman DC-60 motor hung on this truck within the Steeplecab. The brass truck frames look like trolley types. Just painted black and lettered RDG 112.
