Here’s an interesting photo of #493, no information is known about the location, but is a neat early photo showing the large headlight, UP air horn on the roof and parabolic nose.

McKeen Blue Prints for the Oregon Short Line Motor Car. The only difference between this car and the V&T #22 is that there are two more windows on the right side and the baggage doors on the V&T #22 are an extra six inches for the local bands that traveled on that motor car.
