Since I knew exactly where my original 748 was I took some pictures for comparison. This is the Variation C. I also took closeups of the stick on label and the tabs that secure the bridge.

Mine has the same tongue and slot construction as yours and fits together the same. One thing mine doesn't have is a hole in the footings to mount it securely. I don't remember seeing any Flyer ones without the hole. I'll see if I can post a few more pics.

Cramden, I did a search on Minitoys footbridge using Bing. They came right up including pictures of the OB. The pictures that look like the footbridge you have are missing the rivet detail. Really interesting, thanks for posting all those pictures.

I'm still not sure what I have, not that its worth any more or less. Odd that some pics show Colber minitoys on the box and others don't. Still haven't seen a picture without the mounting holes in the pedestal like this one. Oh well, just an oddity or a worker forgot to punch the holes. Remembered this while digging the bridge out, another Minitoy item that I picked up long ago. IMG_0219.JPG

IMG_0220.JPG I think I paid $20 dollars for it a long time ago. Going back over some pics it looks like Colber might have made these for Minitoys as well as for Gilbert.

Here are some pics of my 290. Got it cheap from flyguy55. He told me it had bad paint flaking. Shame. Nice engine and it runs good. I thought I could live with the paint flaking. I have decided it needs to go to the paint shop. As you can see, the cab numbers are in great shape. I will try to save the cab numbers. AmFlyer told me about using Vaseline over the numbers when I paint it. I need to figure a way to feather the flaked areas. This locomotive was not handled rough. It is actually pretty nice. The paint just did not stick to the metal body. I might primer this one even if paint includes a primer.
