Hi List Members,
 
For me, it was the multi-installment series on PRR hoppers done by John Teichmoeller in, I believe, RMJ. I never knew such a quantity of information of cars could be amassed!

For me the seminal modeling projects were Gibb Kennedy’s Kettle Valley passenger cars and John Chapp’s B&LE Pressed Steel hopper. – Al Westerfield

I don't believe that John Nehrich and the RPI group get nearly enough credit for the ,"Great Awakening".Armand Premo

I find the emergence of interest in prototype freight cars in the model railroading hobby interesting.  I came to the topic much later than many here, but can retrace the developing interest through certain key articles. 
 
I think the interesting bit to me is that I had not heard of James Lane’s articles, nor those of  Gary Rausch and Bob Johnson or Amerine until this discussion in this list.    Each of those was published in a journal that was unknown to me back in the 1970s.  I spent a few years there colleting back issue of MR and RMC, but that still didn’t give me awareness of other periodicals.  In fact, I’m not sure when I first became aware of historical societies with publications – but it would have been in the 1980s. 
 
It makes me think just how much easier it is to discovery these things today.
