That would be marvelous!

Thank you very much. You're very generous!

IIRC, Westrail was Richard Hendrickson's company?

Arved, I can photocopy a set of WESTRAIL instructions for
you regarding

kitbashing the Athearn R-40-23 into an ART horizontal seam
reefer. :-)

from 1939 to 1946. Models were fabricated by kitbashing an
InterMountain Railway PFE R-40-23 reefer and installing
square corner 4-4 Dreadnaught Ends and other details. A
two-page ART lettering diagram (circa 1950s) is provided.
Since the Volume 2 was published, accurate models are now
available from Sunshine Models."

this article would be to adapting these models for the ART.
Unfortunately, this volume is OOP, and my efforts to locate
a copy have been nil (although, to be honest, I only began
my search 6 months ago, and I keep hoping the issues no
longer available from RP CYC Publishing Co. will show up in
used bookstores (Railpubs.com, ABE books, etc.) or eBay, but
they have so far evaded me.
