    Picture Identification - Tercio

    Sirs: Here is the circa 1910 scan of a mining? operation I believe was in your area. The RR cars read Colorado & Wyoming. ANY info would be appreciated. Thank you and Happy Holidays.

    It is a very nice photo of Tercio, and one that I haven't seen before. Thanks to John and Dodie for posting the image. :)

    Thank you Al! I had already told John Taylor that you probably would be the one to identify the location.

    Hi John,

    Again, "Thank you" for your scan.

    I am very familiar with the Colorado & Wyoming wooden "Ingoldsby" type drop bottom gondolas, but there is another taller car in the string. I am curious as to which railroad it belonged. Is it also stenciled for the Colorado & Wyoming or a different railroad?

    Thank you.
    Al

    Al: It's a 2 fold thing, first there's a CO & WY car pulled behind the one with the rectangular marking-making an optical illusion. The rectangular car has 8 vertical uprights along the side with the logo between 4th and 5th ones. It's a rectangle with what appears to be one long name in the middle and a shorter word above AND below in the rectangle and another word below the rectangle, NONE of which I can make out. Hope this helps . JT

    Al, check your yahoo email. Just sent you the original scan that John sent me. It is larger than the one I posted.

    Thank you Dodie. :)

    John,

    I can see what you meant by an "illusion".

    The car in question is a flat car with stakes and sideboards, and the car's logo may be a modified "Atlantic and Pacific Railroad" stencil, but I'm not real sure either.

    Thank you both for the information. :)

    Just so others interested may see what we are discussing I have provide a cropped image below.

    Re: Picture Identification - Tercio

    John, and All,

    I just came across a May 2002 Thesis on "Colorado Supply Store Number 31, Tercio, Colorado", by Tammy G. Cooper. This paper is extremely informative, providing many photos, and drawings pertaining to Tercio.

    (Note:The below link is to the 30MB PDF, 145 page Thesis.)
