South Park Masons 1

There are more photos of DSP&P Mason Bogies than any other line.  That’s not surprising given that the South Park had one of the largest stables of these engines.

In addition to the photos shown on these South Park pages, you may also want to visit the Ted Kierscey Collection at the Narrow Gauge circle Web site.

Here are just some of the South Park Mason photos.
