Friends,

Here's a link to a drawing of the WP version of the Western Wheeled Scraper dump car: https://www.wplives.com/diagrams/mow/1930/11001-11040.php . WP also owned an earlier type similar to to the previously mentioned MEW model: https://www.wplives.com/diagrams/mow/1930/39-41.php .

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

I don't think this model was mentioned in the earlier posts about Shapeways:


This represents a Western Wheeled Scraper 30 yard model from about 1928.  According to Train Shed Cyclopedia No. 26 these were owned by the Monon, RI, D&SL, & Alaska RR with similar 30 yard models owned by WP, Montour and PM.   Shortened, 20 yard models of the same basic design were owned by MP, IC and MILW.

Mike Aufderheide
