Default Buda Engine (Buda, Illinois)

I just started a temp job in a small factory in Buda Illinois. Some of the buildings are so old that the rafters still have the pillow blocks where the overhead line shafts ran from the engine house that powered the Buda engine factory. I dont know what year Buda moved to Harvey but it had to be a long time ago.

Does anyone have a Buda engine that was made in Buda Illinois (the orginal factory location) and not in Harvey Illinois ? If so may I please have a photo of it ? Thanks.

From D,S, Mozer, Yardville, N.J, My Buda is a KTU. I guess it was made in the old factory in 1929. If you need a picture give me a call. I am in the phone book. I have the parts book on it too.

I have a Buda motorcar (railroad) built in 1929 and the builder's tag says Harvey, Ill.
