Re: New Haven Heavyweight Pullman Cars

Mr. U23bnynhh. Can you be more specific since the Standing Data NHRTI 5.25.1 -5.25.3 show 63 different types by Pullman Plan No. and Lot No., many of which were rendered as drawings by the late Mr. A.A. Lawrence in the 1960's and released as NHRTI Data Sheets.      If you are interested in the Pullm...

Re: Who Wants Rapido to Make the Washboards Survey

Mr. Abramson. You stated, "Some say "I will order X-amount of Washboards" and then don't come thru." I cannot speak for others. However, what I state publically is a verbal contract as far as I'm concerned. When Rapido announces a project that I'm interested in, I start putting money aside each mont...

Re: General American G85 Flatcar in HO Scale

When I saw the overhead view on the Walthers' site showing the open center with the center beams extending above the car flooring with the crossbracing s...

Re: General American G85 Flatcar in HO Scale

The early drawing for the car shows an open center with crossbracing, and a raised pair of rails. While the length, trailer hitches, brake type (ratchet instead of Equipco wheel), and the decking is incorrect for the Clejan piggyback flatcars series 18100-18299, they might make good donor cars for k...
