Standard Gauge isn't bad!
It makes for nice pictures in Wiscasset, Farmington, Bridgton Junction and Monson Junction! (-a great background for the interesting stuff!)

Yes I can help, buy a CD of any of the early 20th century "Loco an Car Cyclopedias"  from a company called Raildriver  search for; ( Raildriver cyclopedias ) in Google and you'll get it first try.
I would buy the one that was just a few years prior to seeing your truck in question because sometimes the manufacturer ran and add showcasing it just before the railfans started taking photos of it.   I have most of the "Loco & Car Cyclopedias" so let me know exactly what you are looking for and I'll look it up for you to get you started.
