Re: A meet a "VN"

It's coming along beautifully, Chris! Keep building eastward and you're bound to get to Akron eventually! You're keeping the rest of us on our toes!

Re: AC&Y-A&BB Book Update II

The price will be up to the publisher, Morning Sun. We won't have any say in the matter. For the most part, I think Morning Sun's color books were in the $50.00 US range, but have increased to the $60.00 US range in recent years. However, a lot of booksellers may offer these books at a bit of a disc...

Re: Delphos issue

Malcolm --- It appears that the 2-issue coverage of Delphos was in the Nickel Plate Road Society's magazine --- not ours. Some of our members did have a hand in producing that 2-part article. If you'll contact me at tomdav404@gmail.com, I'll try to send you at least one of the two installments. Tom

Re: Building Sunshine Model kits

Just thought I'd add one bit of information regarding these kits. Apparently, all of these cars used the patented Klasing brake wheel and power brake housing. As far as I know, this has never been available as a separate detail part. The Proto 2000 Mather boxcar, which represents an earlier, smaller...

Re: Delphos OH

Hello Malcolm --- I think I can speak for all our members in welcoming you to the fold. Our Society has had decals available in the past, and we are currently trying to make arrangements to have them available in the future. Please be patient and I think we will be able to supply the decals you need...

Re: Combines 261, 262; coach 263 (X-900)

I agree (without checking other photos & drawings) that the car looks like a PRR P70, and the trucks have a similar outboard bearing surface above the spring cluster, but the actual truck itself is shaped a bit differently. If this type of truck were available, it might make a decent stand-in. B...

Re: Combines 261, 262; coach 263 (X-900)

You've nailed the biggest problem: the trucks. Gotta look at this analytically. As far as I've been able to determine, these trucks were only used on RDG cars (and, of course, cars that were sold by the RDG to other RR's). It's my opinion that if the trucks are going to be produced, it will only hap...

Combines 261, 262; coach 263 (X-900)

I have learned a few things about these cars in the course of doing research for the book. They definitely began life as Reading cars, built by Harlan & Hollingsworth of Wilmington DE. I have some leads on sources of further info on the cars, and may be able to find more info on their original c...

My retirement starts this spring. Now I'll have to put my money where my mouth is & build the dang layout for all the equipment I've been collecting.

Re: New products:

LK&O: That's quite a roster! Can I make a suggestion or two? I noticed there are no resin kits on your roster. I think it would be neat for you to try one. The Sunshine "3000" car would be a good one to try. I'm not trying to push the kits because of my involvement in the kit's develop...
