Re: Large Model: MDT Reefer #9000

Found another photo of the model in my freight car computer file.

Does anyone know what scale it was?   It may be bigger than 15” gauge (3” = 1’-0”) although they might have used that size because some railroad industry salesman’s samples were made to that scale.  A CB&Q fan who was a lantern collector found couplers made to that size and it triggered him making equipment and a railroad to that scale…including a live steam 4-4-0.  The only problem with his stuff is that it was perfect…the real things never were built so precisely!!!
