Hi Hohn. Since the Tug Forum spans the globe it would be useful to narrow the possible location as much as possible.

Hi guys.
          thanks for the replies.
As far as I can make out, with a name like "Berlin", and the br on the side, which would mean Bundes republic east Germany, or german railways before the last war.
As for the logo, that's one of the things I cannot make out.
Other than it is scratch built. but surely modelled on something, or plan.
I am at a loss.
cheers  John.

Hi it would seem that I am about to answer my own query,
logo on the tug is from mmm, magazine, and trapletts sell a mmm ,
plans book,
which may have the birthplace of this little pusher in it.
We will see folks, it is a bit of fun finding out the origins of any mystery boat.
will let you know in case anyone fancies building one.
Cheers     John.        angel

I know what you mean. I always get fired up when I find something new about the Franklin. Looking forward to hearing about what you find. Good luck.
