Re: Help with B&O M-59 Ladder Size Approximation

if you know the wheel spacing of the
truck, take the photo tona copy.shop
that has a scaleable copy machine and
increase or decrease the size until you
get the right size, you'll also need a
scale ruler to verify, btw that photo
looks like a model, not the real.thing
;-)

Friends,

I am hoping someone experienced with boxcar ladder sizes could help me estimate the rung width and separation height on the ladder in the attached photo? For size reference the "B&O" in the reporting marks is 9" tall and the "& Ohio" lettering higher up is 7" tall. Thank you in advance.
