Brill-GE Gas-Electric

Art Peterson also sent us this picture of a Brill-GE gas electric car:


It's car 840 of the Occidental Railway of Cuba, photographed at Matanzas in Feb. 1955.  Art would like to know the builder number and/or build date of this doodlebug, but has had no success yet.   Can anyone help?

Searching the Keilty books, the only car that I can match to the photo is builder # 22601, built as a Brill demonstrator in 1928. The car is listed as being sold to the Cumberland & Pennsylvania as #101, then New York, Susquehanna & Western #3002 before going to Cuba.
