Yes, I think I know who bought the Shea-eagle.
Yes, and I know of the diffrence between the two (different amount of holes), but neither do not understand why mr. Wittmann did not change the text for the offered eagle.
A drawing from the waterways eagle will be shown later in my booklet. This eagle is surely from silverish metal (I mentioned Duranalium, which is a specific aluminum class). When the eagle would have had a golden coating it would have been speicified in the mentioned order as "goldfarbig eloxiert"!

I have a question about the size of RR eagles in general: Do the different sizes of the eagles conform to any regulation about how or where they were to be displayed? I have heard that the smaller eagles were on rolling stock, the midsize eagles were on locomotives, and the large eagles (35") were actually used on coal tenders.

It is - in the to me available information - explained where what size of eagle had to be positioned, but for that you have to wait for my booklet! I will show anyway some technical drawings.

I just purchased a very interesting book, "Rheingold" by Jurgen Franzke and I find no pictures of the train with this eagle. Page 66 shows the train in 1938 dress and page 74 shows the train in 1939..................no eagle. It may have been made for the train, but there seems to be no photographic proof that it was ever on the train. The Rheingold switched locomotives at a couple different stops. One would assume that each engine would have to conform to the order, so there should be pictures out there somewhere, but still no luck.

Interesting.........................since the back of both of them say that they are made out of an aluminum alloy.

Thanks Ruben.....

I believe that yours and mine are exactly the same, except in metal composition. The 28" eagles have great proportions when compared directly to the larger and smaller eagles IMO.
