The Cat – D & H Railroad

Here is a great mystery truck for all you rail fans and truck fans alike. Hugh shot this photo back in 1978 at the D&H railyard in Whitehall, NY. What make a truck do you figure this to be? Clearly is Caterpillar powered but the badge on the hood is a mystery. I was quite surprised to find very few shots of the truck online as foamers are usually great at documenting every aspect of railroading. What do you think it is?

    It is a Sterling built by a guy in Kansas City who received permission from White trucks to use the name. Most trucks were built for railroads. I met the guy in the late 70’s when I dropped in on him. He was planning other trucks too. He had a concept for a Euro style COE with a Deutz engine.

    Thanks for soliciting an answer who built the D&H truck.
