rebuilt box car
(70,000- 73,000 series? with an original wooddoor) which has
a gold Erie diamond herald. The photo is datedNov. '46.
Anyone disagree?No, Ed, I have to agree with you. The diamond is
completely different than the lettering, known to
be white. That's the "modern" diamond, too,
though the smaller size. Good catch!
On p. 48 there's a photo showing a LV. 40 ft.composite
hopper. Does anyone know of good photos of thesecars besides
the Standard Steel builders photo from KeithRetterer and the
photo in the Wales collection? Any ideas on howto model the
corrugated hopper doors in HO?Low lighting levels. 8^)
