For the past fifteen year there has been a European combine on display at the Forney Transportation Museum in Denver that they claim was built by the Sjevska Iron Works in 1909. I can find no record of the "Sjevska Iron Works" nor any information about the car itself before it was sold to the Forney Museum by the Midwest Central Railroad/Shop Services of Mount Pleasant, Iowa around 1996-7. I've asked on the Midwest Central Facebook page about the car, and one member remembers it and thinks it arrived in the 1980s or early '90s with a pair of Henschel locomotives (one of which is still at Mt. Pleasant). The sign with the car says it was in New York for a time. Can anyone provide more details? Forney says that its "one of two of its kind brought to the United States." Where is the other?
