SHANDON & OKEANA RAILROAD

Diamond Car Works can truly say its products are tested and proven...on the owner's 15" gauge backyard railroad. It was building equipment for this private empire that brought railroad equipment into the line of products offered by Don Guill's steel fabrication business in the Cincinnati area. Below are several photos showing the Shandon & Okeana and its rolling stock over its five years of existence. Please note this is a private railroad and is not open to the public.
