Re: New Shapes to come

Ed <nprybiged@...>


I don't think Evergreen would be susceptible to anything longer
than 36" as this would present shipping and displaying problems.

I have taken two structural shapes and put them together buy
cutting the ends at a 45 degree angle and glude them together.
After being painted you can not see the seam.

John, I agree with you, I would like to see all the codes done
but looking at it from the business side, if I'm Evergreen, I would
go with the most popular sizes. Then if they sell good I would
consider doing more sizes.

Thanks for your responce John

Interesting idea. I'll voard this train for some code 83 and code 70 styrene rail in lengths of 3' or longer. Anything shorter defeats the purpose.

We were talking about having Evergreen,or someone make some new
shape materials.

Well I'm going to dive off on the high board and hope someone filled
the pool.

How about making Styrene Rail, yes I said Rail, in code 100, 83 and
55. Think about it. How many times have you seen photos of the Right
of Way with, depending on the era, 38' sections or welded rail along
side of the track awaiting to be rerailed, or stacks of rail stored
in a freight yard.

This also opens up the posiblety of a welded rail train. Say 15 old
wooden side dump cars with the ends removed and one or two levels of
Rail. Now, I think, if you ahcor the rail in the middle it should
bend ok without derailing the cars.

So if we can but scale HO Tie plates and Rail Joiners in Styrene why
not Scale Rail. I know it can be done just look at the pieces of iron
work that Plastruct markets.

OK, how about your thoughts.
