I was looking at the IMC list of roads for this new model. None are appropriate for me. Yet. But that Reynolds one caught my eye. Then I remembered that Athearn recently announced a PS 2893 in Reynolds. Yup. I thought "Wouldn't it be neat to have two or three Reynolds cars and mix the PS and ACF?". "Yes, I said. It would."
So I printed out the side views of each car and discovered that the type faces didn't match.
I just compared the drawing for the IMC model with a photo of the real one in Kaminski's "American Car & Foundry Company 1899-1999". And the IMC looks 99% spot-on. Maybe even 99.5%.
So I'm wondering if Athearn is wrong, or if PS used different lettering. Does anyone know of a photo of the PS Reynolds car?
