    Side view of Frisco sidecar/handcar

    Gas-powered handcar/sidecar. See related photo which shows tank. Maybe someone knows more about it.
  2. Frisco handcar/power

    Frisco handcar/power

    Sidecar, has tank, so perhaps "handcar" is not the appropriate term. See related photo, same category.
  3. Handcar, unidentified

    Handcar, unidentified

    Static display, located in compound on S. Jackson Ave in Joplin, Mo., along with SF caboose and a passenger car. No marking on this handcar. Given that Joplin was in the center of the lead and zinc mining industry, might even have been connected with the mining industry?
