JIm, You are right 1860 was an H12-44, old memories problem on my part.=C2=
=A0 When I first got to Ft Carson we had two H12-44's 1858 and 1860.=C2=A0 =
I modeled the 1860 from a brass import, and had to modify the handrails.=C2=
=A0 The 1860 had an amber flashing beacon on the center of the hood but the=
1860 and the 1823 did not. The 1858 did not have the full length handrails=
like the 1860. You had to have a photo to model a specific unit.=C2=A0 I b=
elieve they were all delivered with out the full length handrails and were =
modified at the depot after that, I know of at least four different styles.=
=C2=A0 Handrail variations were common on the FM's.=C2=A0 The 1858 did hav=
e the Transportation Corps Logo but the 1860 did not.=C2=A0 The 1823 GP7L w=
as also basic black and did not have the logo.=C2=A0 Since I was a TC Offic=
er, I was disappointed they did not have the logo.=C2=A0 The 1858 went back=
to the Army Depot in Utah soon after my arrival, and we got the 1823 in ex=
change.=C2=A0 The crew was disappointed with the GP7L, and it sat unused mo=
st of the time.=C2=A0 I had lots of great memories at Ft Carson in those da=
ys.
