Default S W Van Horn Steam Engines, Scale Models for Vulcan Iron Works, Wilkes Barre, PA

These are the only two S.W. Van Horn built steam engines I have ever seen.
The green one was built in 1956 and is a 1/12th scale model of an engine from
Vulcan Iron Works of Wilkes Barre, PA. They are both thought to be builder's models
or prototypes. If anyone out there knows any more about S.W. Van Horn of Scranton, PA
or about these engines and any others he may have built, please let me know.

Vulcan Iron Works built yard locomotives
and lifting or hoisting engines for the mining industry.
