To the STMFC members with the moderator's permission,

The RP CYC Publishing Company is pleased to announce the imminent release of RAILWAY PROTOTYPE CYCLOPEDIA, Volume 33, currently scheduled for distribution in the 2nd half of October 2016. Volume 33 is a special all-color volume, with 70% more pages (193) than the usual number (113). It contains much useful prototype and modeling information as well as stunning color photographs in one extensive, comprehensive article on the following subject:

Pullman Heavyweight Passenger Cars, Part, 4 - Continuing an early RP CYC series covering American conventional heavyweight sleeping cars, the article by Patrick C. Wider describes the heavyweight sleeping cars built and modified by the Pullman Company over a span of forty-plus years. It features nearly 400 spectacular Kodachrome photographs taken by the late Dick Kuelbs in the early 1960s around Dallas, Fort Worth, and New Orleans. Accompanying photo captions include a brief history of each car as well much useful modeling information obtained from Tom Madden’s magnum opus The Pullman Project website. In many cases, both sides of the same car are shown for modeling purposes.

The article ends with a comprehensive bibliography pertaining to Pullman heavyweight sleeping cars. Dick’s all-color Kodachrome photos include cars lettered or decorated for A&WP, ACL, AT&SF, C&NW, CB&Q, CRI&P, D&RGW, DL&W, FW&D, IC, L&N, M-K-T, MP, NP, PRR, SAL, SL-SF, Southern, SP, T&P, UP, and, of course, Pullman (Pullman Green as well as two-tone grey). The photos are arranged in approximate alphabetical order covering Pullman sleepers Alpine Buttercup to Zephyr Tower and many in between. Virtually all of these photos have never been published before.
