Railway Prototype Cyclopedia #8


Brian Rochon
 

My copy of RP CYC #8 arrived yesterday. As always, it is full of crisp black and white photos (plus a few color) and useful prototype information. Issue #8 includes 27 pages of Express Box Cars by Pat Wider, Part four of the series on 1935 A.A.R. 50-ton twin offset hoppers by Ed Hawkins (covering southeastern coal hauling roads) and a 31 page article by Ed Hawkins on 10 ft 0 in inside height postwar 40 ft 6 in A.A.R. box cars. Charles Roth also contributed an extensive article on Baldwin VO-1000 switchers. Definitely worth getting a copy.
