> Mike,Your article brought out my aborted effort to
build this car.It was back on the shelve waiting to be finished or tossed.Your
excellent article gave my feeble attempt new life.Thank you. You mentioned the
routing of these cars over the O&LC.I have a rather sizable collection of
Rutland wheel reports dating back to 1942 and have yet to find any of these

search I would be very appreciative.BTW your layout also expresses your skills
as an outstanding modeler.Armand Premo
