Reply: I have a pull-down Dayton sink and also toilette like yours out of an early 1900's train, I was told. They are in good condition and very cool. If you pull up "Google"-"Joseph A. Proof journal of mechanical" and hit Domestic engineering..., there are two pictures of toiletes and some information about them. Your toilette picture is No. 1, and mine is No. 2. I hope it will help you, and also if anyone knows about old train Dayton Mfg. Co. blue and white porcelain Pullman pull-down sinks, please let me know. I can't find any information. Thanks. Jerry.

Hello:

We have one of these Vogel toilets installed in our unheated back porch. It was operational until a few weeks ago when the bowl started to leak at the inlet flange. Ours has a porcelain bowl which is cracking and thus the leak. So right now I am searching hard for a replacement bowl. All other parts are fine; in fact I have a number of spare parts for the valve... but do not have a spare bowl.

I'm guessing your Vogel is enameled cast iron rather than porcelain since you say you have a Vogel #2.

Our is a frostproof model that was intended to be installed in unheated areas. The trap and the fresh water inlet valve are below the floor and under the frost line. The tank is empty until the toilet is being used. I don't believe these were ever used or intended to be used on trains.

Let me know if you have any ideas on where to find a replacement bowl, as we really miss having convenienece of this extra bathroom.

Thanks Dwayne

We are going to be removing one of these next week from our back porch. If you are still interested, email me at [email protected] and I will contact you if it survives removal.
