All the issues are available on CD from the PRRT&HS. $15 for members, $45 for non-members. Guess I'm going to have to become a member, if for no other reason than the economics of buying the CDs. Membership is (minimum) $35/yr, so if you buy more than one CD, the membership is paid by the discount. To get everything related to the X29, I'm going to need CDs 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6. Might as well get all 8 and have the full set.

Ben Hom's articles are in the August and September 2004 Mainline Modeler.

Ted Cullota covered the X29 in his Essential Freight Car series (#35 and #36) in the January and February 2007 RMC

Richard Hendrickson covered the X29 in....

OK, 34 articles listed for X29 in the Trains index:
http://trc.trains.com/Train%20Magazine%20Index.aspx?view=SearchResults&q=X29

And another 21 pages of articles if you incorrectly add the dash between X and 29:
http://trc.trains.com/Train%20Magazine%20Index.aspx?view=SearchResults&q=X-29

I've got a lot of reading to catch up on. :-(

Guys,
 
Ben Hom authored an incredible article in Mainline
Modeler and The Keystone
Modeler released together, but don't ask me the date,
Ben can tell you.

Arved:


I shared
your confusion about
the various RC X29 offerings.  I haven't had much
luck finding the
out-of-print RPCs, but Ted's two articles in RMC (Jan
and Feb 2007) were
extremely helpful to me.  These are pretty easy to
score:  eBay, or
Paul Gibson has them at railpub.com I believe.
