The "V8" on the left side of the body must have been and advertisement for vegetable juice. :-)

The Fliverball was/is the Sierra Railroad's Model T railcar, built from a new car originally. It's still there. The "V8" was probably a joke about it having a Ford V-8 engine (which, of course it doesn't have).

A little OT, but there is a neat video on the restoration of Sierra's #3 steam locomotive, plus other neat resoration videos (no Model Ts, unfortunately) available at this site (I have no connection to the site or its owners).

Some of their videos are shown on PBS occasionally.

I'd rather see a picture of the three girls in the water tower at the Shady Rest Hotel!

Ok, OK my second choice would be the Model T train.

You can tell that's an indoor set. 2 x 6 boards for railroad ties and no splice plates where the rails are joined together WOW

Reminds me of the Milwaukee RR. Two by sixes spaced two feet apart. As for the plates, this welded or ribbon rail. Modern!
