Re: FOR SALE or TRADE: LESLIE RS-CHAMBERS.

Re: Possible prototype K5? - Alberni Pacific diesel

Re: Possible prototype K5? - Alberni Pacific diesel

That's a really early K5H, like Evansville said, it's from the 1950's. It's a first generation K horn (if K's had generations) with rubber diaphragm seats and garter springs like the P series has.
