Photos of the L&N gons are available. There is one available from Bob's Photos and I think my MtV Builder's Photo came from the Merrilee's Collection at the Archives of Canada. Then there is a group of 3 photos shot by Howard Ameling from different angles of a car loaded w/coal. I think Mr. Ameling's photos are now available through Cleveland St. Univ. where his collection is deposited. My memory is I made these available to Chad to assist his pattern making and the necessary decals.
