Re: CofG 10701-10800 Flat cars

Todd,

 

Are there any plans or solid photos of the lettering prior to ’44?  There are a lot of early and middle steam era modelers on the list who would appreciate another era appropriate car and it sounds like a Tichy K brake set and the right decals might be all it takes to make the kit appropriate to them.

 

If not, just direct me to a place to donate directly for restoration of the prototype.  The project is worthwhile, but I do not need more transition era anachronisms on my layout!

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

David, prior to 12-44 the C of G used a rounded font on their freight car equipment. The font shown in the artwork is post 12-44.

The decal reweigh dates are all
late 40’s early 50’s.  Are there decals appropriate for
a car running in 1934 too?   Dave Bott  From: STMFC@...

cars    I thought that others may want
to read more about an interesting fund raising project for
the restoration of a 1925 TCI&R constructed flat car
being restored by the Central of Georgia Railway Historical
Society. I recently purchased a kit and can confirm these
are well worth the money for those wanting to roster a
unique piece of history.
